Hotel Appi Grand & Tower

Appi Kogen

Hotel APPI Grand is created by Yusaka Kamekura, who is one of Japan's most famous architects.

Yasuka designed posters for Tokyo Olympics, Good Design Mark, and other masterpieces.

Kamekura discovered ski magic in his 40' s and traveled to resorts all over the world. Kamekura aimed to create a European influenced resort, but in a Japanese style.

Something never seen in Japan. He aimed to break the image of "mountain area' s hotel = log house in the mountain".

You can also see his ingenious designs on ski slope, structure and color of buildings in the area & in APPI' s logo.

Kamekura created an urban style hotel that is suitable for a long & relaxing stay catering to your every need.

Early January 2017

Appi Grand was excellent. Our rooms in the Tower, although not brand new in their furnishings, were spacious, well appointed, and with great views.

The service was extremely good.

The  food in all the restaurants was delicious.

The location of the hotel is ideal for easy and true ski in ski out skiing.

The facilities of the hotel were extensive, and very good for entertainment of children and toddlers. 

Thank you again for all your help with the booking. 

Regards,
David
