And relax. Amanemu puts you close to beautiful Ago Bay, and invites you to laze in a state-of-the-art spa, visit a Shinto shrine, stroll along pilgrimage trails…

You open the textile shutters of your villa and suddenly your lounge becomes as large as the great outdoors. The outside floods inside your room and you’re at one with nature, the rustling trees and the beautiful Ago Bay beyond. This is pure relaxation - reason enough for including Amanemu as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Japan.

After the busy bustle of Tokyo, the bullet trains zooming you across Japan and the visits to the country’s major sights…Amanemu will make you feel that the world is standing still. You’ll have time to indulge in a water-themed restorative spa. Watch pearl fishermen on their rafts and oyster divers in the bay. You can take a gentle pilgrimage along the Kumano Kodo trails and visit the Ise Grand Shrine.
