Getting to Koyasan from Hashimoto-city, Wakayama Prefecture

Is it possible to use the Japan Rai pass to get to koyasan? I know there is the world heritage pass but I'm confused as to how to use it.


Hi there,

The route between Hashimoto - Koya-san is travelled by the Nankai Railway and requires a separate tickets. A one way from Hashimoto to Koyasan including the rope way is ¥ 830.

You can use the JR Pass from Hashimoto to travel back to Osaka and Kyoto.
