The Most Dynamic Hotel Break Can Be Enjoyed at LOTTE ARAI RESORT
If you think that a normal travel routine — sightseeing, eating and resting — is boring, the solution is finding something to do. With a 1.5 kilometer-long zip line tour, Japan’s biggest tubing course and plenty more opportunities for adventure, LOTTE ARAI RESORT is the perfect tourist destination.
As the fresh smells of summer and fill the air, it’s clear that vacation time is upon us. As the year nears its mid-point, the most important thing for many of us is to get some rest and recharge. As quite a number of people prefer to focus solely on resting, for many the true meaning of vacation, they find staying at a single hotel a more attractive option than a tightly scheduled tour. The LOTTE ARAI RESORT, located in the exotic nature of Japan’s Niigata Prefecture, offers all the conditions for the perfect hotel vacation. Guests can eat, play and rest, all in one place. From rooms with views of the beautiful Myoko plateau to a year-round swimming pool, outdoor hot spring and a restaurant that serves Korean, Japanese and western food, the resort has everything any holidaymaker could want. The secret behind being the best hotel vacation is the activities that allow you to interact with nature, and there is nowhere better to experience that than in Asia. As we prepare for the greenest season, here is an introduction to those relaxing and exciting adventure facilities.

Zip tour

A thrilling zip tour that spans the sky
Nothing quite beats the thrill of flying through nature on a single wire suspended in midair. Racing down from an altitude of 950 meters to 710 meters in just three minutes, LOTTE ARAI RESORT’s zip tour is Japan’s longest course, at a total length of 1,501 meters. Starting off on the zip tour, riders are first amazed by the explosive speed of the ride, flying off the launching platform like a personal rollercoaster. Guests are then left breathless by the amazing scenery of the Northern Shin-etsu mountains and the plains of Takada. Riders don’t need to worry about the safety of the zip wire as it has a diameter of 19 millimeters and weighs about 2.4 tons. It’s so safe that the same cable is used as an emergency evacuation tool for the NASA Space shuttle launcher. The thrilling experience in such a magnificent setting is enough in its own right to justify a visit to the LOTTE ARAI RESORT.
