A Typhoon on October 23rd destroyed part of the railway of the Nankai Koya Line between Hashimoto and Koyasan Station and repairs are ongoing. However, it is very hard to tell when the train will resume the operation at the moment.
There are replacement buses running every 30 minutes from Hashimoto station to Koyasan station. The bus ride is travels along beautiful mountain roads, but it can take up to an extra hour compared to the train. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but please make sure to plan accordingly in order make the most of your opportunity here. There is so much to see and do!
