The harmony of the architecture and design, combined with elements of the local milieu are a classic hallmark of any Aman, and this is no exception. Aman’s sixth property to be designed by Kerry Hill Architects, Aman Tokyo cleverly reveals itself through a series of unique design elements, blending perfectly a mix of traditional Japanese design with contemporary flair. Playing with an abundance of daylight, classic Japanese materials such as Camphor wood, Washi paper and stone are fused with modern technology and a variety of fabrics and textures to create a subtle interplay of shadow and light – fundamental to its design and ambience.

The centerpiece of the lobby and soaring nearly 30 metres high, is a majestic architectural feature resembling the interior of a Japanese paper lantern. The vast expanse measures 40 metres long by 11 metres wide. Created with layers of textured Washi paper and stretched with the Shoji frame, the Lantern rises six floors through the centre of the building. During the day, it allows diffused sunlight to illuminate the lobby, while in the evenings the ambience evolves via a series of orchestrated lighting scenes.

Beneath the Lantern is the hotel’s inner garden. Celebrating the creative and cultural tradition of Japan is the prominent Ikebana, a disciplined art form in which materials such as living branches, leaves and blossoms are carefully arranged to represent a closeness with nature. This sits atop a calming water feature and is complemented by two traditional Japanese rock gardens.
Designed to reflect the feeling of Zen, the rock gardens feature boulders from northern Japan, are minimal in design and intended to calm the mind, drawing it away from everyday concerns towards an appreciation for nature in the raw. The inner garden is surrounded by an engawa, a Japanese term for a wooden space between the garden and living areas in traditional homes.
