Set back from the town in the deep forests and high mountains of the Japanese Alps, the Associa Hotel offers a high standard of facilities in a peaceful and secluded location.
The hotel has a couple of fine restaurants and like many Japanese resort hotels has excellent indoor and outdoor onsen bathing facilities, an integral part of any Japan experience. The open air baths on the top floor look out over the mountains and are particularly great for relaxation. Rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, and on a clear day offer spectacular views over the Japanese Alps.
