BUS (For winter season)

There are covenant bus routes to and around LOTTE ARAI RESORT. A bus runs daily between LOTTE ARAI RESORT and ski resorts within Myoko-Kogen and the Akakura Onsen areas.
It departs after breakfast and returns to the resort before dinner. It is highly recommended for overnight guests.

If you change trains at the Myoko-Kogen Bus Terminal, you can also reach the Jigokudani Yaen-Koen, Nozawa Onsen or Madarao-Kogen ski parks.

For those wanting to take a day off from skiing and snowboarding, we highly recommend taking the daily sightseeing bus that runs from Arai to Takada city center, Naoetsu-Joetsu shopping areas and the Naoetsu Aquarium Umigatari. This bus route is easily accessible from the resort.
