  1. Hey all, Just trying to find some info on good places to stay at Appi kogen, im travelling up to Appi from Tokyo on route to Hokkaido via train with another mate and we are stopping at Appi for about a week.

Thinking Niigata..Yuzawa or Iwate ?? When we get to Hokkaido we are spending another week there in Niseko. Anyone done this before, worthwhile or not ?
