Janu opened its inaugural hotel in Tokyo this week, marking the inception of a robust and expanding pipeline of 12 properties.

The new brand draws from the legacy of its sibling, Aman, while charting its own 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.

Located at the heart of Azabudai Hills, a new neighbourhood in the Japan capital, 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 square-metre spa and wellness centre to a landmark building.

“The opening of Janu Tokyo solidifies Aman Groupʼs status as the unrivalled emblem of ultra-luxury hospitality,” says 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 todayʼs 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 Tokyoʼs commitment to enhancing wellbeing begins in its multi-disciplinary spa and wellness centre which spans four floors. Designed to encourage social wellness, and complement both active and passive pathways, one of Tokyoʼs largest gyms (340 sqm) 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.

For those seeking a more mindful path to wellbeing, the wellness centre also features two signature Spa Houses, available for up to four guests on an exclusive basis. Additionally, a consultation room, hair and nail salon, and seven private treatment rooms offer an array of Janu therapies.

Janu Tokyoʼs two Aman Essentials boutiques ‒ the first standalone outlets outside an Aman resort setting – are accessible to both hotel guests and Azabudai Hills visitors from street level. One boutique showcases the wider lifestyle Aman Essentials collection, while the second is dedicated to beauty and wellness.

There are eight distinct venues for dining and socialising, bringing together the influences of European and Asian culinary styles in a contemporary interpretation.

Janu Mercato enhances the convivial dining scene with its three Italian open kitchen counters – one for homemade pasta, another for fresh fish and seafood, and a third for European charcuterie and cheeses – while the adjoining Janu Patisserie offers a 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, with 13 seats gathered around a grill, serving the finest seasonal ingredients cooked over charcoal and complemented by premium wine and sake.

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 such as its signature dishes of Peking duck and Wagyu fillet, alongside a fully vegan menu. The restaurant also features four private dining rooms seating up to ten guests. 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 Tokyoʼs districts, curated by legendary mixologist Shuzo Nagumo.

Across eight floors, Janu Tokyoʼs rooms and suites continue the experience, spanning from 55 sqm up to 519 sqm in size and redefining contemporary elegance. Most offer private balconies immersing guests in the city skyline, while Corner and Tower View Suites benefit from dual-aspect views through magnificent windows.

The Janu Suite is the hotelʼs largest individual accommodation with 284 sqm of residential living space. Its two sprawling balconies offer captivating views of Tokyo Tower and Azabudai Hills, while a modern kitchen and bar counter, dining table for six, separate study-cum-library and a spacious lounge, create a home away from home. When combined with its three adjoining rooms, the Janu Suite reaches a total size of 519 sqm, making it one of the largest in Tokyo.

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.
