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,...

We stayed at Pension Mutti in a triple room for three nights in January 2013. We chose this location for our accommodation whilst skiing at Api Kogen ski resort.
