The first Japanese ryokan brand of Aman Resorts, Azumi has been designed by renowned Kyoto architect Shiro Miura.
Located on a small island part of a picturesque chain of islands linking Honshu’s main island to the nature-rich island of Shikoku, citrus trees are the main sight of this area, giving it a Mediterranean feel.
The heart of this island is Setoda, a quaint town which used to be the local centre for salt production and commerce during the Edo period (1603-1868). Located within Setoda, Azumi makes you feel like a local the moment you step outside into the town, and in a paradise of relaxation the moment you return.
Modern Japanese rooms combine the utmost comfort with a strong authentic feel, reinforced by the use of artisanal products crafted locally.
For dinner, enjoy a modern Japanese fusion course meal featuring the best of the local cuisine, from citrus fruits to oysters, from octopus to locally grown vegetables, without forgetting the famous local salt.
For younger guests or guests looking for a very local experience, the nearby Yubune property offers an authentic but comfortable experience and plenty of chances to interact with locals: a public bathhouse within its premises is open to both locals and guests until the evening.
