    I'm going to interrupt my Asian roadshow thread for special mention of the Aman Tokyo. I arrived earlier this evening and all I can say is WOW.

    They are on soft open.....only 20 or so rooms so far.

    I've known this....but it is nice to be in it....these folks play at a different level than all other hotel operators.

    My iPad photos don't do the room justice. More tomorrow.

    Pretty sleek as expected from an Aman. Enjoy your stay. :)

    NYB, isn't this the first Aman to be opened within city proximity?

    Venice is in a dense location as well...but this is considered by most to be the first true city property.

    The service culture in Tokyo makes this the logical spot to start.

    So, so good....

    Venice would be the other one, but they're planning more in the future incl. Paris, New York, London and more. Sounds good. :)

    No question.

    If you are in Tokyo and stay somewhere else, you are staying at no better than the second best hotel in town....though you might have a few more Yen left in your pocket!
