On the prefectural border with Nara, Mt Kongō is Osaka’s tallest mountain and is popular in winter for its ice trees (juhyō), but also has some stunning autumnal foliage.

The ropeway is currently suspended (and has been since 2019).

How to get there

From Namba Station, catch the Nankai Kōya Line for Kawachinagano Station; from there, catch the Nankai Bus bound for “Kongōsan Ropeway-mae”.
