We went on Inasa-san in the evening. There is a ropeway on the mountain, which is fun to use. The ride is only five minutes though. The view is impressive and it is interesting to observe how the city changes from daylight to nighttime. It really is worth the trip.

If you can manage to go up on a firework day, I bet you there is no other view in the world that beats this one!

This is well worth the visit to really get a birds eye view of Nagasaki, you have to pay a small amount to drive up to the lookout, the walk would be taxing, either way when you get up there the whole of Nagasaki is on display, only wish I'd gone up there the night they had fireworks, must go

It's quite a long walk from tram station, and the cable car up to the top of Mt.Inasa was so expensive. Anyway, the view I saw from the observatory at the summit was worth everything I spent on the way here. There're a long round bench that I could take a seat and watch the beautiful view as long as...

Hop into a No 3 or 4 bus from outside the train station and it will take you to the stop at the bottom of the hill. Walk for about 5 minutes and find yourself at the ropeway station. Go early and miss the crowds going up. The ride is slow enough to get some good photos if you are... More

It involves a bit of a walk to to get to, but the view is definitely one of the highlights of Nagasaki, and definitely worth the trouble. Make sure you have a little time to spare, the cable car can take a while to get on, if it's busy, in both directions. The view is panoramic, taking in both the... More

Quite a walk (20-30 mins) from the tram station to the ropeway station. Supposed to be a millionaire dollar view - I would agree if it's just Nagasaki, but within Asia, Hong Kong or even Singapore has much a better night scenery.

We decided to head up here on our first night in Nagasaki and it was definitely our best idea. From Nagasaki train station, take the no. 3 or 4 bus and get off at the Ropewaymae bus station. We didn't have any problem getting there or back after sunset. The cable car up is very informative and told us that... More

The night view from here certainly deserves the high praise it receives! The website is helpful with information about how to get there by bus from the Nagasaki central train station. However, we made an error of getting off one stop too early and having to walk the remaining distance of 1 bus stop in the darkness. In any case,... More

the view from the observation structure is great. On a clear day you can probably see most of nagasaki and the surrounding islands.
