JR trains don't go to Koyasan. The Kansai Thru Pass took us there from Osaka. The cable car was include din the pass. it was fun to travel that far, and we had a superb day.

Nothing exciting
Nov 2019
If you go to Koyasan (which we recommend), you will almost certainly arrive by funicular, which you catch from the station. Once at the top, you HAVE to take the coach into town as part of the road is (understandably) closed to pedestrians. Too many sharp bends and nowhere to get off the road.

Nice station at the end of the cable train

This station is the end of the cable train that starts in Gokurakubashi and bridge an altitude from 540 to 950 meter in about 20 minutes. Nice view on the surroundings in mean time.

Thrilling ride
Dec 2018
Quite unique, a very steep train ride on angled railcars. I f you sit at either end, you'll be thinking: What if the line broke?

Helpful staff!
May 2019
This is a great little train station with very polite and helpful staff. At the end of a long and anxious travel day, it was great to be directed to the cable car and then to the proper bus.

Normal station

You have to pass from here if you want to visit Koyasan. After the train you need to use a cable railway and than a bus to go to Mt. Koya.

Well run as is all Japan
Aug 2018 • Family
It was an interesting journey to and from the station from Osaka. To get to the town you have to take a cable car up a very steep gradient to the bus station. As with all Japanese railways every thing was on time and the station wll kept.
