Hotel Overview


Perched in forested hills a short distance from the centre of Takayama.

Rooms at Hotel Associa

Hotel Associa’s rooms and suites are elegant and classically decorated, with most in the Western style but with beautiful, traditional Japanese rooms also available. Rooms feature stunning views of the Japanese Alps and reflect the homely, woodland atmosphere of their surroundings.

Food and facilities

Hotel Associa offers a choice of cuisine, with traditional Japanese fare on offer at Ka-un Restaurant and fine French food on the menu at Rosiere. Common to both is a commitment to seasonal, fresh produce from the mountains. Making the most of the region’s hot springs, Hotel Associa features a range of hot baths and spa treatments.

Activities at Hotel Associa

The Japanese Alps region offers ample opportunities for walking and hiking amidst beautiful mountain scenery, while the town of Takyama boasts some of the best-preserved Edo-period streets in Japan, and is full of fascinating museums and galleries. After a day’s sightseeing or soaking up the mountain air, take a dip in the hotel’s 7th floor ‘sky-bath’, or enjoy the beautiful views from the bou-no-yu (‘overlooking bath’).
