Take a jumper, maybe a beanie, because it can be cold at the top. But well worth the trip up there. Shame there is no cafe at the top, that would have been even better. Though there is a information centre with vending machines, and...More

ずっと楽しみにしていたロープウェイが2018年12月3日(月)から12月21日(金)まで整備点検のため運休。シャトルバスで行けば良いのかしら? It 's really sad that Nagasaki ropeway has been cancelled from December 3 to 21. I'll be back !

When in Nagasaki do not miss the opportunity to ride the Nagasaki ropeway to Mt. Inasa. I would suggest to ride it at nigthtime. Comparable to Victoria peak in HK. Round trip: JPY1,200 , One way: JPY720

We queued a little for the recently refurbished ropeway - taking round trip tickets. The ropeway cars can get quite packed - so you might not always get the best view on the ascent. The trip takes five minutes and then you ascend to the...More

This kind of gondola lift is often called a ropeway in Japan. It takes you to the top of Mt. Inasa from where there are views of the city and the islands and sea that visitors to Nagasaki by boat will be familiar with. One...More

Go at dusk and watch the city turn from day to night so you get both views. One of the three top night views in the world next to Monaco and Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. Ropeway ride is short, but views at the top...More

We arrived early one afternoon to be told it was shut until 6pm... so we took bus 5 up and returned on the ropeway. It is a short ride about 5 mins and cost ¥700 oneway.
