We arrived at the top of Mt Inasa at twilight and were able to watch as the lights of the city below slowly came on. It was a stunning view and even though it was very popular with tourists there was plenty of room to spread out (however this was during November). Unforgettable.

The 360 degrees view from the top of Mount Inasa probably gives you the best view of the beautiful surroundings of the city. Go in the late afternoon while there is still daylight, enjoy the sunset and watch the city lights slowly turn on.

If you like a walk or a run, this place is fantastic. While it is advertised as a good night-watching spot, I think it was just as good during the day. You can walk up from the river in an hour or so, depending on your fitness.

Voted 3rd best night view in the world, and you can definitely see why! We had a lovely clear view on top of the observatory and were able to see all around us. Seriously a spectacular view. We decided to try to eat in the restaurant inside the building too, and it was totally worth it. We didn't have to... More

We went early in the morning and hence the funicular was not crowded at all. There were a couple of school girls and us and although the scheduled cart was due in another 10 mins they took us up immediately without having to wait. The morning views are spectacular and highly recommendable. I like seeing cities from high grounds anyway... More

The view from Mt. Inasa (Inasayama) in Nagasaki City has been voted the third best in the world. Even if it´s cloudy it´s awesome because it feels like walking among the clouds. When the weather is fair one can see most of the city from the Mitsubishi shipyards by the ocean near Dejima to Urakami Cathedral and beyond all the... More

We took the Ropeway up, which was touted to be a great thing to do - but was probably the biggest tourist rip off around. It was 700Y one way and they absolutley crammed us in like sardines. They put 33 people in one tiny cable car - there was not enough room to move. With so many bodies on... More

It's easy to get there. I went there by bus, which took about 10-15 minutes. (I got on at Nagasaki Station) After get off the bus, a 10-minute walk brings you to the ticket window. I went there on Wed night so there was not many ppl there. Therefore, I didn't wait long plus the gondola comes every 15-20 minutes.... More

It is said that this view is one of the three best views in Japan! It must be right! There is a cable car that takes you to the top of the hill for 700 yen. The view is absolutely great, especially in the night! Just be there!
