Aman Kyoto, Celebrations & events

Host the perfect event

Taking place at a Shinto Shrine, the traditional Japanese wedding is woven with rituals that have become intertwined in the fabric of the country’s culture. While today many opt for a western wedding, such traditions - from the wearing of the Shiromuku, a pure white kimono, to the choice of an auspicious wedding date in accordance with the rokuyo calendar - are still widely honored. 

Whether seeking the full romanticism of a Shinto ceremony or simply to imbue an upcoming event with a sense of locality, the sacred rituals of Japan can be easily integrated into any occasion using Aman Kyoto as a base. Just 30 minutes by car from Kyoto Station, away from the bustle of the city, the resort accommodates a variety of celebrations, from intimate gatherings to large-scale events and business retreats with tailored itineraries.

Aman Kyoto, Taka-An Aman Kyoto, Celebrations

Weddings and celebrations

Surrounded by nature, Aman Kyoto is a secluded sanctuary, resting in a once-forgotten garden. In this peaceful haven, the resort caters to weddings and celebrations both small and grand, with the opportunity to make Aman home through a private buyout of the entire resort, allowing you and your guests free reign of the secret garden surroundings.

The resort is also easily accessible to the Kamigamo Shrine - one of Kyoto’s oldest shrines and most desired location for traditional ceremonies. Celebrations can further make use of the resort’s extensive facilities, including hot springs for onsen bathing, and exceptional dining – from picnics among the flora to cocktail parties on the expansive garden terrace.

Business retreats and incentives

Aman Kyoto’s design by Kerry Hill Architects encourages connection to the great outdoors. Whether coming together for a business retreat or a meeting, the resort’s light-filled spaces offer a blank canvas from which to bring your event to life. Aman Kyoto’s hospitality philosophy is further defined by its surroundings, with the Japanese way of treating guests, known as ‘omotenashi’, serving as the inspiration for the resort’s service. Never is this more well demonstrated than during a business retreat, when itineraries are seamlessly planned with activities ranging from cooking classes to meditations and painting experiences with Zen Buddhist monks.

Intimate occasions

Aman Kyoto is also ideal for celebrating personal milestones including engagements, anniversaries, birthdays and graduations. Aman Kyoto’s Chefs can provide a range of memorable private dining experiences, creating bespoke menus using the highest-quality ingredients sourced from local farmers and fresh fish from the nearby ports. For those staying in one of the resort’s larger pavilions, a private chef can prepare and serve dinner in the comfort of your own space, ensuring an unforgettable evening.
