Amanemu, Aman’s second resort in Japan, will launch on 1 March 2016, in time for the celebrated Sakura season. With every room featuring its own onsen, Amanemu will be the perfect rural complement to Aman Tokyo, successfully launched in 2014, and is located in Ise Shima National Park, host to the G7 summit this May.

The resort has been designed by Kerry Hill architects, the same team responsible for the classic Japanese home aesthetic of Aman Tokyo and has drawn inspiration from Japanese minka, vernacular houses with traditional low-slung tiled roofs and dark stained timber exteriors. Suites are elegantly appointed in a composition of understated simplicity and interiors warm and carefully crafted in light Japanese timbers.

Perched on the shores of Ago Bay, known as the ‘Bay of Pearls’ Amanemu will offer enlightening Aman journeys through the region including private tours of the Ise Grand Shrine, Japan’s most sacred Shinto shrine, where guests will witness kagura, a sacred worshipping dance to the deities. Visits with ama, female Japanese divers who played an integral role in the development of the cultured pearl industry in the 19th Century, can also be organised. Today the ama free-dive for shellfish, such as oysters and abalone, and guests will have the opportunity to spend time with them in their amagoya huts.
