    The highly anticipated sibling to the renowned Aman, Janu’s unveiling is the first in a 12-strong global pipeline of projects across city, country, and coastal destinations.

    Janu (or soul in Sanskrit) Tokyo is now taking bookings for first access in March.

    “The arrival of Janu Tokyo signifies a pivotal moment in Aman Group’s progressions – not only introducing the energetic spirit of Janu for the very first time – but also representing the evolution and enduring strength of Aman,” chairman and CEO, Aman Group, Vlad Doronin, said.

    “As we unveil this new concept in one of the greatest cities, my vision is for the Janu brand to trailblaze a new direction in hospitality whilst preventing, upholding and following in the illustrious footsteps of its legendary sibling Aman.”

    The flagship hotel is connected to the vibrant heart of Azabuadi Hills – a city abundant in nature, culture and art – and was designed by a leading Japanese developer, Mori Building Co. Ltd.

    Janu Tokyo reveals itself with a lofty gallery and reception, where a sense of space is fostered through considered use of glass and textured mouldings that reflect soft, glowing light.

    “Janu Tokyo’s DNA exudes a youthful energy, brimming with liveliness and playfulness that sets it apart from the poised and composed character of Aman,” comments Jean-Michel Gathy, the award-winning international architect responsible for the hotel’s interior
    design.

    “The space is a thrilling exploration of textures, colours, and design elements that awakes the senses and
    ignites imagination.”

    Janu Tokyo will be home to a range of dining options from Mercato, an all-day eatery celebrating Italian culinary culture to European pastry at the Patisserie or the hotel’s two Japanese restaurants, Ligura and Sami, guests can be sure of top-end dining during their stay!

    There are also divine options for guests to unwind like the Janu Lounge on the Garden Terrace where afternoon tea and light snacks are served while those after something a little stronger can head to the Janu Bar to enjoy craft cocktails.

    On floors six to 13, Janu Tokyo’s rooms and suites start at 55 sqm, presenting timeless Asian-inspired interiors with contemporary European accents. A strong focus on minimalism and symmetry encourages comfort, creating a harmonic balance of energy.

    Most offer private balconies immersing guests in the city skyline or Azabudai Hill’s surrounding greenery, while Corner and Tower View Suites benefit from dual-aspect views through magnificent arched windows.
