Day trip until night time at Koyasan?

Jump to last reply

Hi guys, am new to the forum :)

Am planning my solo trip to Japan this coming April/May (3rd time in Japan but 1st time flying solo) and was wondering about day trips to Koyasan (from Osaka).

So basically, the 1 night stay is way too pricey for my budget but based on what I've read Okunoin is awesome at night and I would love to experience it.

Is it possible/feasible for me to:
A) trek my way through Okunoin in the late evening and
B) make my way back when the lanterns are lighted up and still
C) make it in time for an 8.25pm train back to Namba Nankai? (I checked the train schedule but am confused by the timing for the bus and cable car.)

Or should I just swipe and splurge on the one night stay in Koyasan? (I already booked my Osaka stay for that night so that's one more dilemma but might be fixable. But the 1night stay is basically double of any hotel price I'm paying for my other 13 nights in Japan, hence why I'm reluctant to splurge.)

I would appreciate any input if anyone has done any similar day trips :)

Thank you!
