We timed it brilliantly to get up Mt Inasa before it got too busy and before the sun started to set. We watched the sunset, admired the night time city scape, and descended the mountain before the crowds arrived. If I was to go again I would book a window table in the bar at the top of the viewing... More

Take bus no.5 from Nagasaki station to the Mt. As there are two directions for bus no.5, therefore have to see to Mt Inasa else the bus will ended half way of the journey. The ride cost ¥150 only. When reach the bus terminal point, you have to walk n climb staircases to reach the observatory point. It's about 600m.... More

A great view overlooking Nagasaki and the surrounding bay. Best time to go up is just before sunset. Be aware of strong winds, so dress appropriately and keep warm. Visited May/June 2013

This is a scenic overlook. You ride a cable car to the top of the mountain and you can the see all of the Nagasaki area. It is well worth the trip. The view is great.

Unfortunately the night we visited was cloudy, but the views before the rain set in were promising. Make sure you go on a day when the weather is good, because there are limited entertainment options once at the top!

Beautiful view of the city, it was a cloudy day when we visited so we decided to hang around and eat in the restaurant in the hope that it may clear. We had tried booking earlier in the day but they dont take phone reservations, so if you are thinking to do the same then go straight to the restaurant... More

The ropeway to the peak of Mt Inasa was a good experience but a little pricey. The view is impressive. Unless you dine in their restaurant, there is not much else to do but gaze down on the city. After 15 minutes or so we were ready to head back down. (Mind you it was chilly; maybe a warmer evening... More

A visit to Mt. Inasa starts with a ropeway which presents surrounding local community. 360 degree view on top of Mt. Inasa presents breathtaking scenes full of natural and architectural marvels.

We drove up the mountain road at night to the observatory. May be a bit scary at first as we are not used to driving mountain roads. The view was spectacular but worth while. In fact it was much better than the view of Victoria peak in Hong Kong. Highly recommended if you have time at night. You could also... More
