The city of Myoko is located just 2 hours from Tokyo by bullet train, as well as Niigata Airport by car. Lotte Arai Resort lies with scenic lands including a mountain range that starts with Mt. Myoko and extends ...More all the way to the Sea of Japan, and rice fields that stretch as far as the eye can see. Within the abundance of nature surrounding Lotte Arai Resort, adults and children alike will be able to enjoy both Japan's longest zip line and the Tree Adventure courses. In the pure white of the winter season, you can enjoy skiing and snowboarding on slopes that boast the highest snowfall amount and some of the finest powder in all of Japan. Our guest rooms are as comfortable and calm as mountain villas, yet boast hospitality of the highest quality. Rounding it all out is the local foods, sake, and culture that you'll experience nowhere else. Less

Pricing to hire from Lotte Arai looks to be between AUD $350 and $500 for 7 days. Google “lotte arai hire skis” and the first result has the details (TripAdvisor won’t let me post a link, sorry!).
