We had a great overnight trip to Koya San from Osaka - It's a really beautiful spot.
The journey itself via train, cable car and bus was an adventure in itself and very scenic, and the town is small and easy to get around on foot once you arrive.
It's a beautiful small town full of temples and other traditional buildings and gardens to explore, and Oku-no-in Cemetery was a real highlight (make sure you walk all the way to the end of the path to the temple of lanterns, it's really something).
Highly recommend staying overnight at a temple (we chose Eko-In) for a fantastic experience and to enjoy the place in peace and quiet once all of the daytrippers have gone home.
