About Travel in Japan
We are spending a night at a temple in Koyasan. We plan to travel from Kyoto, stay a night then travel the next day ( a Sunday) back to Tokyo. I have tried to look the trip up on hyperdia and it says 'route not found'. Any suggestions?
JR does not go to Koyasan, so you need to take a different train line (Nankai). The problem you are likely having is the train line to Koyasan is currently down due to typhoon damage, so substitute buses are running for that section.
If you are not aware of the the Koyasan World Heritage Ticket
It's a good money saver.
At any rate, the main rail connection would be at Hashimoto Stn. Here would be the route:
Just change the date and time to when you are traveling and rerun it.
