Accommodation

Appi Kogen Resort has five different accommodation options and there is also a good range of pensions nearby. A range of budgets is catered for; from the very top end to basic lodging with shared bathrooms.

NB the Appi Resort properties often don't release accommodation availability until late in the year.

Hotel Appi Grand The lemon gold Appi Grand Hotel is rather distinctive and provides a delightfully high standard of accommodation, a very extensive range of facilities, and exceptional service. The hotel has 230 rooms in the main building and 174 rooms in the adjoining tower. All rooms are Western style and room types include a range of twin rooms, family rooms and suites. Located at the base of the ski area, the hotel is very conveniently ski-in ski-out. See our Hotel Appi Grand review for more information.

Grand Villa Accommodation Despite the name, these buildings provide more of a hotel style of accommodation rather than that of a villa. Grand Villas 1, 2 and 3 are all located adjacent to the ski slope. Grand Villa 1 and 2 provide a moderately economical option with Japanese-western combination rooms. Grand Villa has twin rooms or Japanese-western rooms for up to 7 people, so it’s a good option for families. This accommodation has two restaurants on-site.

Appi Pension Village Appi has a large pension village about 1km from the ski resort with many pensions and inns that provide very reasonably priced accommodation. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to the ski resort, but most pension owners will generally provide transport to and from the ski area.  

La Vista Appikogen ($$$) is a moderately priced hotel located in the pension village and 1km walk to the ski area. The hotel has a range of rooms including twin rooms with western beds and private bathroom, double rooms (a rarity in Japan!), and Japanese rooms (with futons and tatami flooring), some with private bathroom and others with shared bathroom. The hotel has lovely onsen baths including nice outdoor baths.

Pension Mutti ($$) is a popular choice for inexpensive Appi Kogen accommodation with really friendly hosts. Pension Mutti is located 600 metres from the Appi Kogen ski area and free shuttles are available between the pension and the Appi Kogen train station (with pre-arrangement). The twin rooms are simple and have western beds. Bathrooms are shared and there is lovely outdoor onsen bath. If you get the half-board package, evening meals alternate between western and Japanese food and are a highlight of a stay at Mutti.

The Appi Rocky Inn ($$) offers inexpensive lodging, about 1km away from the slopes. The Rocky Inn has a great communal area, restaurant and bar. Rooms have western beds and include twin, triple and quad rooms, some with ensuite. The inn also has a couple of holiday homes that are self-catering with a kitchen.
