Koyasan to Naoshima

hello, what is the best route from Koyasan to Naoshima please?

does the JR pass cover any part of the journey?

many thanks


Hi there,

The JR Pass covers a great part of this journey but not everything.

The first part is using the Nankai Railway to travel from Koya-san (Gokurakubashi station) to Osaka, this part is not covered by the JR Pass.

Then use the Shinkansen and local JR lines for travel to Uno station, from here the ferry goes to Naoshima (Ferry is not included).

The full route would look like this.

Hope this helps,
