Reshaping Today’s Luxury Hospitality

Janu, meaning ‘soul’ in Sanskrit, has opened its inaugural hotel in Tokyo, marking the inception of a robust and expanding pipeline of 12 properties. Reshaping today’s luxury hospitality landscape, Janu draws from the legacy of its revered sibling, Aman, while charting its own unique course with an innovative and inspiring vision.


In harmony with Aman yet offering a distinctive touch, Janu radiates an uplifting spirit and playful design narrative, in contrast to the serene tranquillity and calming zen for which Aman is renowned. Put simply, if Aman is sanctuary, then Janu is connection. The launch of Janu Tokyo solidifies Aman Group’s position as the pinnacle of ultra-luxury hospitality and lifestyle experiences.

At the heart of Azabudai Hills, a dynamic new neighbourhood created and managed by Japan’s leading developer, Mori Building Co. Ltd., Janu Tokyo enhances the experience of both its guests and the local community through enriching moments that celebrate the joy of genuine human interaction. A fitting flagship, Janu Tokyo introduces 122 guest rooms and suites, eight venues for dining and socialising, and a 4,000-sqm spa and wellness centre.


“The opening of Janu Tokyo solidifies Aman Group’s status as the unrivalled emblem of ultra-luxury hospitality,” said Vlad Doronin, Chairman and CEO at Aman Group. “Aman has always epitomised luxury hospitality, with devoted guests at its heart, who repeatedly journey through our constellation of hotels and resorts. Now, as we introduce Janu Tokyo, we are heralding a new era.

“The strategic decision to launch Janu reflects our commitment to evolving alongside the desires of today’s dynamic travellers, particularly the offspring of Aman loyalists, the rising ‘Amanjunkies’, who seek uplifting experiences and authentic human connections. Janu Tokyo promises to be the epicentre of this transformative movement, welcoming a new cohort of guests.”


Janu Tokyo’s commitment to enhancing well-being begins in its multi-disciplinary spa and wellness centre which spans across four floors. Designed to encourage social wellness, and complement both active and passive pathways, one of Tokyo’s largest gyms is accompanied by five movement studios for group exercise including spinning, yoga, golf simulation and boxing, alongside an extensive hydrotherapy and thermal area with a 25-metre indoor lap pool and heated lounge pool for relaxation.

Complementing the exceptional wellness and retail facilities are eight distinct venues for dining and socialising. Bringing together the influences of European and Asian culinary styles in a contemporary interpretation, diners are inspired through a bold and vibrant design narrative that uplifts the spirit and innovative dishes that delight the senses.


Janu Mercato enhances the convivial dining scene with its three Italian open kitchen counters, while the adjoining Janu Patisserie offers a sumptuous marble-walled space to experience the art of Parisian pastry making. Iigura reinterprets Edomae sushi tradition, offering a choice of à la carte or omakase dining, while Sumi presents a contemporary interpretation of sumibiyaki, offering an intimate omakase experience for dinner only.

The diverse array of venues also includes Janu Grill, with its show kitchen and two wine cellars and two private dining rooms, and Hu Jing, offering fabled Cantonese specialties alongside a fully vegan menu. The Janu Lounge and Garden Terrace provide a serene setting for afternoon tea with idyllic views of Tokyo Tower, while the Janu Bar explores the sensory language of the city through the art of mixology with a menu of crafted cocktails inspired by several of Tokyo’s districts, curated by legendary mixologist Shuzo Nagumo.


Across eight floors, Janu Tokyo’s rooms and suites continue the experience, spanning from 55-sqm up to 519-sqm in size and redefining contemporary elegance. Meticulously designed, a strong focus on Japanese minimalism and symmetry brings space and harmony amidst the energy of the city, while elegant European accents add a touch of opulence and grandeur. Most offer private balconies immersing guests in the city skyline, while Corner and Tower View Suites benefit from dual-aspect views through magnificent windows.

Transforming luxury hospitality where it is needed.


Beyond its world class amenities, Janu Tokyo is the only hotel within Azabudai Hills, an inspirational urban hub of nature, culture and art. A cornerstone of the community, the hotel’s symbiotic relationship with its surrounds and connection to its cultural fabric will enrich the lives of both guests and visitors to the district.


As the first in a 12-strong pipeline for the brand, Janu Tokyo represents an energising new chapter in the evolution of luxury hospitality, where innovation meets tradition, and guests are invited to embark on a transformative journey of discovery, connection and renewal.
