getting to/from Mt Rokko

The last time I went, I took a bus from Osaka to Arima and then the ropeway to Mt Rokko. However, due to the fact that the ropeway's last trip is at about 6pm, I had to cut short my stay on Mt Rokko so that I can get back to Arima and back to Osaka.

However, I notice there are buses running on Mt Rokko. May I know if there is a bus from Mt Rokko that actually runs to a train station where I can then take a train back to Osaka instead? If so, please let me have more info such as the schedule and Itinerary of this bus?

Also, while there are some attractions on Mt Rokko, they seem to be far apart. Is there a tourist bus or something that plies the various tourist attractions?

Thanks, yokeebol.

I was thinking if there is a way I can get back to Osaka from mt rokko without using the mt rokko-Arima rope way which operates until 6pm only. I want to be able to stay on mt rokko late into the night. The bus to hankyunrokko station also operate until 5pm only.
