We welcome travelers from all over the world who are searching for a friendly and relaxed environment. We are locals running the guesthouse and thus can offer you a good insight into this sacred area, as well as some insiders tips on the best places to go. We look forward to having you stay at our guesthouse in Koyasan.
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.
Second step (Gokurakubashi Station -Koyasan Station)
By Cablecar: 5 minutes
From Gokurakubashi Station, you will need to transfer to a cable car, which will take you up a steep slope (don't miss the scenery!) to Koyasan Station.
Third step (Koyasan station - Okunoin-mae bus stop)
By bus : 20 minutes
Koyasan Station is located a fair way from Koya town center, and so you will need to take the Nankai Rinkan Bus to get to our guesthouse.
The Nankai Rinkan Bus Terminal is just in front of the Koyasan Station.
From Koyasan Station, get on a bus bound for Okunoin-mae, Take the bus until you reach Okunoin-mae bus stop (approx 20 mins). You should get off at Okunoin-mae bus stop.
Fourth step (Okunoin-mae bus stop to Koyasan Guesthouse)
By foot: 3 minutes
From Okunoin-mae bus stop, walk along the road towards the traffic light.
After passing the traffic light, you will see two gift shops on your left hand side. Continue walking straight along the road for 100 meters, until you come to our guesthouse (located on your left).
