We came here with friends who recommended it. They spoke very highly of every aspect and we were not disappointed. Firstly, Kayoko is a lovely host. Fiercely proud of her Iwate-produced food and full of Appikogen history, she makes you feel very welcome. She'll drive you to and from the ski resort and other connections, given notice. Her English is...

We stayed at Pension Mutti for two nights in order to ski Appi. The place and staff were amazing! The accommodations were far superior than the description given on booking.com and we were continuously overwhelmed by the staff supporting us with rides where we needed to go. In addition to all of this the meals were another unexpected delight. However,...

Mutti is a wonderful pension home with a great ambiance, exquisite decor, amazing meals, and a beautiful onsen to enjoy after skiing. The pension is about 1 km down from the ski hills for easy access. The owner, Kayoko, is incredibly helpful, is fluent in English, and has worked as a ski instructor around the world with many great tales...
