Pioneering a new direction in luxury hospitality, Autumn 2023 will see the arrival of Aman’s sister brand Janu’s first hotel in Tokyo. Janu – translating to ‘soul’ in Sanskrit – will deliver an elevated guest experience akin to Aman while providing a spirited social scene in contrast to Aman’s seclusion. Janu Tokyo will reflect and celebrate the city’s rich, cultural fabric through the brand’s appreciation of cuisine, art, design and service. Located in Tokyo’s anticipated ‘Modern Urban Village’, Azabudai Hills, the hotel will be spread across 13 floors in the B-2 District Tower designed by Pelli Clarke & Partners. 122 guestrooms will be designed by long-term Aman collaborator Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston Architects, with floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the iconic Tokyo Tower or surrounding greenery.
Janu Tokyo will be home to six restaurants as well as a bar, lounge and garden terrace, each exuding the brand’s signature energy inspired by connection, balance and exploration. On site will be a patisserie, a vibrant Italian food emporium, a grill restaurant, a Chinese restaurant and two Japanese restaurants. The Janu Wellness Centre, spanning over 4,000 square metres, will be one of the largest wellness facilities of any luxury hotel in Tokyo with a social wellness and goal-setting concept at its core. Shared experiences will be realised through a range of facilities including five movement studios offering spinning, boxing, yoga, Pilates and simulated golf training.
