Life Is Beeeautiful
We had a very relaxed weekend at Life Is Beautiful. It was an excellent change of pace from camping/hiking, was definitely needed. We just so happened to find the perfect place for it. The room was two twins with its own bathroom and refrigerator. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We opted for the Breakfast and Dinner which we do not regret as the meals were delicious. The owners and staff were all extremely friendly and understanding especially with our skoshi Japanese speaking abilities. We would definitely recommend and would indeed stay again.

I had a great experience here! I chose to stay here because it was close to Appi and was priced better than any of the surrounding hotels and came with dinner and breakfast. I highly recommend paying the little extra for the meals. They were fantastic. Just what I needed after a long day. The rooms are quite cozy and the beds are very also comfortable. I plan on staying here next time I go to Appi Kogen.
