Janu – Aman’s highly-anticipated sister brand – has opened its inaugural hotel in Tokyo, marking the first in its pipeline of 13 properties across city, country and coastal destinations.

Meaning ‘soul’ in Sanskrit, Janu was first announced in 2020 and is a hotel, residence and lifestyle brand based on social connection, equilibrium and human interaction.

With 122 rooms and suites, Janu Tokyo and has opened among a landmark building designed by architects Pelli Clarke & Partners and interiors by Jean Michel Gathy of Denniston.

It is the only hotel within the Azabudai Hills – a mixed-use urban district created and managed by Japanese developer Mori Building Co as part of a 30-year urban regeneration project.

A progressive new neighbourhood designed by architectural firm Heatherwick Studios, Azabudai Hills is described as a city within a city, abundant in nature, culture and art.

The location features Japan’s tallest skyscraper and 24,000sq m of green space designed by founder Thomas Heatherwick, alongside offices, residences, educational institutions, galleries and over 150 luxury retail and dining outlets including a Japanese food market.

“The opening of Janu Tokyo solidifies Aman Groupʼs status as the unrivalled emblem of ultra-luxury hospitality,” says Vlad Doronin, chair and CEO at Aman Group.

“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.”

Countries of interest for upcoming Janu properties include the Turks & Caicos, Montenegro, Portugal and Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, South Korea, Thailand and the Maldives.

Accommodation

Across eight floors, Janu Tokyoʼs rooms and suites continue the experience, spanning from 55 sqm up to 519 sqm insize and redefining contemporary elegance.

Meticulously designed, a strong focus on Japanese minimalism and symmetry brings space and harmony amid the energy of the city, while elegant European accents add a touch of opulence.

Most offer private balconies immersing guests in the city skyline, while Corner and Tower View Suites benefit from dual-aspect views through magnificent windows.

Creating seamless ease for groups and families, an abundance of connecting rooms are available, while all enjoy large bathrooms with double vanities, rain showers and bespoke soaking tubs - separated from their bedrooms by sliding partition walls ‒ alongside spacious walk-in wardrobes and living areas.
