Getting There & Away

The closest station to Daisen is Yonago, about 30 minutes from Matsue (in Shimane) and one to 1½ hours from Tottori on the San-in line.

The Daisen Loop bus (one-/two-day pass ¥1000/1300) runs to Daisen-ji from Yonago Station on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays in early May, early August and late October. It stops at all the main sights around the mountain.

Nihon Kotsu (www.nihonkotsu.co.jp) buses run regularly to the temple from Yonago (¥830, 50 minutes, five daily).
