One fortunate couple will experience a five-night exploration into the contrasts of Japan, including the vibrant energy of Tokyo, the timeless beauty of the cherry blossoms and the ancient appeal of Kyoto, coupled with an immersion into the luxury of the BVLGARI brand.

Founded in 1884 by Greek silversmith Sotirio BVLGARI, the brand is renowned for Italian craftsmanship and stunning jewelry. Over time, BVLGARI’s unique style, blending vibrant colors and Roman motifs, reshaped the jewelry industry while honoring its cultural heritage.

Your home in Tokyo will be the BVLGARI Hotel Tokyo. Occupying the 40th to 45th floors of the Tokyo Midtown Yaesu skyscraper, the hotel is located within walking distance of some of the best attractions in town such as the Imperial Palace and the vibrant shopping areas of both Nihombashi and Ginza.

During your stay, savor two exceptional dining experiences, including one at Il Ristorante Luca Fantin, led by Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito. Chef Niko, hailing from Abruzzo, Italy, offers a menu that blends classical Italian cuisine with local delicacies, featuring dishes like vitello tonnato, truffle pasta, Miyazaki beef carpaccio and Japanese lobster stew.

Centered on a Hinoki cypress-wood counter that seats eight, Musashi by Aman invites guests to experience the authentic Japanese omakase dining tradition. In front of diners, Master Chef Musashi prepares an exquisite selection of sushi based on the finest and freshest ingredients available that day. Enhance your visit with a hands-on chocolate-making class at the BVLGARI Dolci Boutique, creating delectable gems for both the palate and the eye. You also have the option to plan your trip during cherry blossom season in late March or early April.

A two-hour ride on the shinkansen, or bullet train, will take you to Kyoto. Considered the cultural capital of Japan, the city is home to many Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, gardens and palaces, some of which have been designated collectively as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

If the travel dates coordinate with your schedule, BVLGARI welcomes you to experience their High Jewelry event in this special city. Anticipate an exclusive experience showcasing their rare and meticulously crafted creations. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with BVLGARI’s experts and designers, gaining insight into their exceptional pieces and the artistry behind them.

Your Tokyo experience will culminate with a private shopping trip at the BVLGARI Boutique in Ginza, where you’ll find a spectacular selection of watches, fragrances, gifts, accessories—and, of course, High Jewelry. You’ll receive a $25,000 credit toward the purchase of a piece of jewelry of your dreams.

This lot provides an unforgettable view of Japan’s culture and culinary scene, along with the timeless luxury of BVLGARI—bid high and make it yours!
