Yes, I've stayed everywhere in this country, and for 2015, Aman Tokyo is definitely the best hotel in Japan. It's not cheap either, but you certainly get what you pay for in this case.
It's understated luxury and quiet service, although everyone is extremely friendly for a Tokyo hotel. As for the design, it's stark, severe and minimalist, though, so it's a very unique visual treat.
Don't expect the usual fancy trappings of a Western hotel.

THE AMAN TOKYO SUITES
ARE LIKE MODERN APARTMENTS
And the suites are huge, which is why I say I'm "literally living at the Aman Tokyo."
The suites are more like apartments, with a palatial foyer and bathroom, a decent kitchenette and enough space even for a private office.
MY OWN PRIVATE OFFICE
AT AMAN TOKYO
There's also a very nice workstation in the bedroom so you don't have to share electric outlets and workspace if you're sharing the room with someone.
That's always a minor problem, isn't it, when you're two people in a room and there are way more gadgets than there are people, even with room service in the room with breakfast.
And both of you always have to be on your Blackberrys. Or on Viber.
NO NEED FOR DISTURBANCES
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
Then, if you wake up in the middle of the night and you want to check Facebook or write a blog, you can do so in your private office without disturbing anyone else, as this private office is just off the living room in the other wing of the suite.
How nice is that?
The other night, I didn't even open my computer. Instead I read the FT Weekend in my designated private office, and tried to think about a couple of decisions I have to make soon.
This set-up is certainly perfect for a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful #Travelife.
