travel to koyasan

Recommended Posts

Hello!  The place we are staying on Koyasan tells us the typhoon in November has disrupted the funicular--has anyone taken the substitute transportation?  Where do we pick it up?  Osaka Namba to Hashimoto?  Any advice is appreciated.  We don't go until April 2018-but the temple lodging doubts the repairs will be done by then.  Too bad, this was being looked at as a treat.  Selfish, but once in a lifetime.  Thanks again anyone who can advise us.

There is a substitute bus running between Hashimoto and Koyasan stations. If you buy a Nankai ticket to/from Koyasan or have a rail pass that covers Nankai Railway then the bus is free.

Take a train from Nankai Namba to Hashimoto and follow the signs to substitute bus to Koyasan. Taking a bus may prolong your journey by up to one hour.

When returning from Koyasan take the same bus back to Hashimoto and continue on Nankai Koya line to Osaka Nanmba.
