The Aman Hotel Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan
The architecture of the Aman Hotel Toky itself is one of the most visually striking in the entire city. Built above the Otemachi Tower on floors 33 to 38, the Aman has the height one wants from a stay in this densely-packed metropolis. With glass windows at every turn, the hotel capitalizes on its unobstructed Mt. Fuji view. The lobby’s 90-foot atrium resembles a paper lantern thanks to a tower of shoji screens diffusing light.
Aman Tokyo Hotel is centrally located in Tokyo and easily reached from both International Airports Narita and Haneda. The Aman Tokyo is on the doorstep of the verdant Imperial Palace Gardens and just steps from the bustle and boutiques of Ginza. The historic commercial hub of the Edo period, Nihonbashi, is also nearby.
