Pension Mutti is a very charming pension lodge in Appi Kogen where you will feel right at home. Kayoko who runs the hotel together with her family, speaks good English and is very interesting to talk to. She can provide information not only about skiing in Japan but in the other parts of the world as well, as she has traveled extensively to ski including countries such as Austria and Australia where she guided and instructed. She is also the reason why the lodge is beautifully decorated with dried flowers. If you want to stack on some snacks, wine, beers or beverages, she will gladly drive you to the convenience store every couple of days.

The pension lodge has 11 rooms with Western style accommodations and they are each equipped with bathrooms and basins. Some of the rooms do have showers. They’re simply furnished and have small storage areas. If you are going to spend time in the lodge, the lounge area is equipped with a TV set, DVD and a library where you can relax and hang out. The dining room is also a nice place to relax with a warm homely atmosphere. If you would like to take a long hot bath, it has an outdoor bath where you can soak into.

Kayoko and her family serve a fantastic Western style breakfast with humongous servings which will keep you satisfied till dinner. To make sure your palate is always in for a treat, dinner dishes alternate between Japanese and Western style cuisine. The dinners are to die for! The food is excellent with lots of courses with huge servings.
