Travel Summary

Okunoin-mae bus stop – (foot) – Koyasan Guesthouse

First step(Osaka Namba Staion ‒ Gokurakubashi Station)

[By train: 90 minutes]
Koyasan is most easily reached from Namba Station in Osaka. From Namba Station, take the Nankai Koya Line to Gokurakubashi Station. There are 2 types of train you can choose to take from Namba Station. Both a limited express service (about 80 minutes, JPY 1,990) and a regular express train service (about 100 minutes, JPY 1,230) are available. While the limited express trains are slightly more expensive, they will secure you a reserved, front-facing seat. This will be more comfortable than the standard trains and will allow you a better opportunity to enjoy the scenery. Few limited express trains run each day, and so you may need to plan ahead. In contrast, the regular express trains depart frequently (three times an hour). Whichever type of train you take from Namba Station, you will eventually reach Gokurakubashi Station.
