A popular resort hotel slightly out of town, surrounded by alpine forest, Hotel Associa Takayama Resort is a pleasingly indulgent option if you’d like your cultural immersion with a side of luxury. It has a reputation for its onsens – no less than 10 indoor and outdoor hot springs with glorious views of the Japanese Alps, particularly pretty during the snow. There is also an excellent spa offering a long menu of treatments, and a choice of French or Japanese cuisine at three good restaurants; meaning you can retire to the mountains after sightseeing for an onsen and a tasty supper.

All of the 290 rooms and suites have spectacular views and comfortable furnishings. You can choose either a Western or Japanese style room – or a combination of both; most sleep two/three people, but the Japanese Suite can take five at a push.
