Culture & History

Amanemu is located near to the holy Ise Grand Shrine, one of Japan's most sacred sites, dedicated to the sun goddess Amaterasu. You can explore with an expert guide, gaining insider access and witnessing a traditional prayer session and deity ritual dance. For centuries, Ago Bay has been famous for the elite Ama Divers - women who free-dive for abalone, sea urchins, and pearls. Ama - translating to "sea woman" - have been diving in Japan for up to 3,000 years. For a truly unforgettable experience, you can dine (on a special Amanemu menu) with an ama in her hut, discovering this fascinating ancient way of life. Alternatively, take the three-hour journey to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes that connect sacred sites across forested mountainous landscape.


Spa & Wellness

Combining innovative wellness techniques with ancient Japanese bathing traditions, Amanemu's stunning 2,000-square-metre spa boasts its own mineral-rich private onsen, two authentic bathing pavilions, four treatment rooms, an Aqua Movement Suite for water treatments, and a cutting-edge hydrotherapy facility. A unique menu of healing treatments use chemical-free Aman skincare products as well as local ingredients from Ise Shima National Park - including herbs, seaweed and pearl powder. A Wellness Immersion Programme offers a bespoke combination of therapies and bathing for complete rejuvenation, while there is also an expansive glass-walled studio, outdoor yoga deck, Power Plate exercise platform and state-of-the-art gym.


Dining & Gourmet

The Ise Shima region is known as the 'breadbasket' of the ancient imperial court and the restaurant here embraces the glorious local produce. Focus is on the seafood of the Ago Bay - including spiny lobster and abalone - as well as the region's famed Matsusaka wagyu beef, and fruit and vegetables from local suppliers. You can head out fishing with an expert, before allowing the master chefs to create exceptional sashimi with your ultra-fresh catch.
