Aman Sibling Janu Opens Flagship Hotel

Janu Tokyo Pool

Aman Resorts is the definition of traditional luxury. Three decades have led to perfecting the craft of hospitality. While Aman is still one of our favorites, its spunky, outgoing sibling, Janu is creating a name of its own.

Janu steers away from Aman Resorts’ traditional celebration of intimacy and solitude. Instead, the spaces are meant to ignite human connection that otherwise gets lost in our digital world. Socialization is prioritized in every fiber of their flagship hotel – Janu Tokyo. The new multi-floor accommodation is located in the Residence A Tower in Azabudai Hills.

Design

To foster a collective, there needs to be space, and Janu’s got it. Between the 122 rooms and suites, 25m swimming pool, and 4,000 sqm spa and wellness center; designer Jean-Michel Gath has thought of it all. For instance, the gym (Tokyo’s largest) is designed for socializing with group workout classes like boxing and pilates. The wellness center has the same concept with Hamman and Banya communal baths.

Floor-to-ceiling windows also help bring the city’s vivacious energy inwards, while still allotting some privacy on private balconies. The contemporary minimalism of the rooms stays true to Aman’s roots. But with the new intention of community through lounge spaces, conjoining rooms, and some of the largest suite offerings in Tokyo.

Dining

There are eight eateries you can choose from. Just because you’re in Japan doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy good Italian. Janu Mercato is open all day for fresh Italian cuisine served from three open kitchens. The open concept creates the perfect atmosphere to talk to new people.

Janu Grill has locally sourced meats and seafood and Sumi offers a traditional charcoal grill. Hu Jing has modern Cantonese, and Iigura is your spot for seasonally prepared Sushi. If you want a casual social scene, head to the Janu Patisserie, Janu Bar, or Garden Terrace for tea time.

Neighborhood

Azabudai Hills complex is its own metropolis within Tokyo. The 30+ year project finished in 2023, so relatively new and with a luxury hotel open to guests just a year later. The affluent neighborhood has all the offerings of an exciting new destination, including galleries, lots of green spaces, and a bountiful array of luxury outlets. If you love art and nature, you’ll fall in love with the 24,000 sqm of green zones and gallery hopping in Azabudai Hills. Sprinkle in engaging luxury accommodations at Janu, and you’ve got an abundant trip.

Janu, Tokyo is only the beginning. The brand plans to open eleven other properties in the coming years, which is great news if you’ve wanted an introduction to Aman with a relatively reasonable price tag. There’s no better time to go than Spring when the city streets come alive with greenery and people are in high spirits.
