We stayed for 7 nights at the lovely White Rose Inn. Ayami and Rob are very friendly and helpful hosts and the inn is extremely comfortable, warm and inviting. Great amenities, comfy beds, friendly staff and free parking, we enjoyed our time here while we explored the area. The pension village is just a short drive to Appi ski resort. Highly recommended.
Stayed at the White Rose Inn. Luved it. Rob, Ayami and all the staff were more than helpful and most welcoming. Our room had an ensuite plenty of space warm and toasty heated floors. Food was Western, breakfast is buffet style and plentiful. Dinner is good quality very filling and the bar has everything you could need from an aperitif to a fine Japanese whiskey. Can't wait to visit again
We went to Appi kogen to snowboard/ski in the fantastic offpiste powder. Picked White Rose since it looked cosy and it truly was! We stayed for 4 nights. We are so happy we stayed here! The sweetest and very service minded couple run this place. Ayami is a very good cook and made us the best meal every night. The room was clean and the beds comfy. The whole house is heated through the floor so its warm, even so you get to borrow slippers. The bathroom is like a mini-onsen. They know a lot about the area and could provide us with very useful information. We're definitely going return to the White Rose!
Japow - Appi-kogen WOW!! White Rose Inn; as the title says fantastic facilities and service from warm and friendly hosts; great setup Rob & Ayami!! Anyone looking for a friendly, relaxed, hassle free ski / boarding destination, you certainly can't go wrong with this one. Highly recommend!!
We have just had a week with Rob and Ayami. We have done a lot of traveling in Japan, and it was one of the best experiences we have ever had. The recently renovated rooms are very comfortable and warm. The friendly, family style atmosphere is so relaxing after a big day out and about and the food that was served up night after night impressed every time. From traditional English Cottage Pie to Japanese Nabe, it was just delicious and fantastic every time. The deep onsen-style hot baths were a real highlight after a big day out on the slopes. Appi Kogen is NOT for the party animal and those who want to go out and drink in bars each night. It is a quiet area, but the skiing is absolute first class. White Rose Inn is so close to the ski fields (10mins walk or 3mins in the shuttle bus), and the mountain offers something for every experience level. We are really looking forward to our next visit to Ayami and Rob and can't wait to get back to see them again next year. Cannot recommend White Rose Inn highly enough!…
