Aman Kyoto

1, Okitayama Washimine-Cho, Kita-ku
Kyoto, 603-8458

Set in a secret garden at the heart of a 32-hectare forest, Aman Kyoto, Aman’s third destination in Japan – opens on 1 November 2019. The resort is a secluded otherworldly retreat: moss-covered boulders glow emerald-like in the lush undergrowth, winding footpaths link tranquil forest glades, and streams provide a soothing soundtrack broken only by birdsong. From this peaceful haven, where gardens, forest and healing waters rejuvenate body and mind, guests can explore all that Kyoto has to offer on uniquely curated, behind-the-scenes Aman Journeys.

    The Living Pavilion by Aman

    Resting at the heart of the resort is the convivial Living Pavilion by Aman with its central fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto an ornate terrace overlooking the Kerry Hill garden. With beautiful views of the surrounding gardens and forest, the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, both to guests of the resort and non-residents (with advance reservations). At the helm is the Executive Chef serving home-cooked Kyoto-style cuisine, and innovative Western dishes. Chef uses only local and ‘in season’ ingredients, many of which are sourced from the hotels very own garden, giving guests the experience of being at one with nature with their cuisine. 


    The resort’s Japanese restaurant, honours the legacy of artist Honami Koetsu (1558-1637), who helped shape the culture and creative life of Takagamine, the area in which Aman Kyoto resides, by creating an artist’s colony there. Honami Koetsu was considered a national treasure of his time and was a craftsman, potter, lacquerer, and calligrapher and whose work is considered to have inspired the founding of the Rinpa school of painting. 

    Taka-an is a culinary homage to this heritage and serves as an invitation to experience the authentic Japanese art of hospitality, in which every element – atmosphere, design, and cuisine – work in harmony and are in perfect balance. Strictly seasonal, chef-selected ingredients are prepared and served with meticulous precision, to serve dishes that transform Kyoto’s local produce into works of gastronomic art. This restaurant also houses two private dining rooms.
