Kansai Airport to Mt. Koya

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I am wanting to go to Mt Koya from Kansai airport. I am then wanting to go from Mt Koya to the Dontorini area. 

What is the fastest way and the best train/buses etc to do.  

I am trying to see if it is possible to do this in a day. arriving at the airport at 6am and leaving at 6pm.

 

Thank-you!

Ellie :)

Normally traveling from Kansai Airport to Koyasan takes about 2 hours via Nankai Airport Express and Nankai Koya Line Express.

Some areas of Nankai Koya Line and the cable car are currently not accessible because of typhoon damage in 2017 and there is a substitute bus service running from Hashimoto to Koyasan station. Taking the substitute bus can extend the journey time by 1 to 2 hours.

You can find more information about the substitute bus service here: http://www.nankaikoya.jp/en/images/pdf/for_passengers_201711.pdf

Returning from Koyasan you can take the substitute bus to Hashimoto Station and Nankai Koya Line to Namba Station, which is close to Dotonbori.
