I went up the mountain as it was getting dark (literally). It was still bright as I went up the tram, and when I reached the top of the mountain, it became dark. I would say i had the best of both worlds. It was freezing and the wind was really strong, causing me to lose my balance a few... More

There is a beautiful trail going from Fuchimachi crematory, very close of the fuchijinja ropeway that brings you up to Mount Inasa, where he view is really spectacular and 360 degrees complete. definitely a must see. Mount Ina (inasayama) is's even better than Hong Kong peak or Bogota's Monserrate where the view is also impressive, but only singlesided.

The view from the top at night is beautiful! It actually reminded me of the view from The Peak in Hong Kong; the view from Mt. Inasa is the second prettiest night time city view I've seen. There is a restaurant at the top, as well as great photo opportunity areas, including one with a professional photographer. Of course, there... More

We were there during sunset (with another 1000 tourists), but it was worth it. The view is great and when the lights slowly come on, you simply get hungry seeing all the restaurants in the distance. There is a restaurant with an English menu in the viewtower.

The view was quite manificient, and freezing cold after snapping many photos. We did not know of the way to drive up (got the wrong phone number for GPS and ended up at ropeway station) so parked at ropeway and took the ropeway up. Regretted as the ropeway was very expensive for a 5mins ride.

The night view was so-so but it was really very cold. We took the free shuttle bus that picked up visitors from various hotels and also Nagasaki station. You need to book the bus time you want to go up to the rope way but you can come back on any available bus coming back.. The night view whilst nice... More

Winding road up in the dark night is rewarded by beautiful views of Nagasaki and the harbor. Very cold at night. There is also a building for those who want to climb higher to have better views. Ropeway is also available.

Rated one of the three best night views in all of Japan. You can either take a bus to the lookout or a ropeway (cable car). We chose to take the bus from Nagasaki Station for 150Y, it was a short ride to the last stop but we still needed to walk another 20 minutes to reach the summit. The... More

Be sure to go Mt Inasa, especially on a good day. It is really beautiful. From outside Nagasaski station, take bus no 3 or 4, about 15 mins to Ropeway Mae (150 yen) stop , walk up a short gradual slope on your right. Go in from the shrine entrance and you will see the Ropeway station. The cabin can... More

The view of the city from the top of the cable car is excellent, especially if you time it just as the city is lighting up - once the sun set though it was both breezy and quite chilly up there so bring a jacket!
