It’s fixed and working since April 2018.
Get your cameras out.
Also week days 2-3pm there’s a huge gap of no cable cars and or trains Is look up the schedule ahead as I had to wait an hour. Really beautiful view in the waiting area upstairs though.

We arrived on the cable car and were met by a helpful, English speaking man who asked where we were staying and told us what bus to catch. A great start to a very interesting visit to Kyosan.

A very good way to access Koyasan. Then you can take the cable car the rest of the way up the mountain. It's a comfortable ride with pretty scenery and town's on the way. Not a bad option.

In typical Japanese efficiency. The train track had been damaged by a typhoon a couple of months earlier. When we got off our connecting train a bus was waiting. It left exactly when the train would have left, bypassing the rope way we where driven up into the snow to arrive at Mt Koyasan station earlier than we would have done by the traditional method. The station is unimpressive but, is your gateway to the sacred mountain of Koyasan.

We spoke to some helpful people at Osaka station and got a combined ticket which took us from Osaka, on the train, on the funicular railway and the buses once in Koyasan. We had a JR Pass, but you can't use that to get to Koyasan. We also decided to put our big bags in lockers at the station in Osaka, so that we didn't have too much to jam on a small train on our journey.
The journey was not too difficult, and you get to Koyasan station and grab an easy bus ride into the main part. The staff there are very helpful and there are clean toilets.
Koyasan is special, so do make the effort to go when in Japan.
