Nice evening and night view of the Nagasaki city lights, but it's nothing that special to make up for the jostling crowds every night. There's an even better view of the sunset from the opposite side of the viewing platform, which is a lot less...More

Mt. Inasa is a “mountain” with a height of a little over 300 meters nicely located west of Nagasaki city and (from the top) providing you with exceptional beautiful views over the entire city. Mt. Inasa can be accessed by car, taxi, bus or ropeway....More

Loved the viewpoint. Not too keen on the accessibility as only possible via ropeway (if arriving without car).

If you can get to Nagasaki Station, there's bus No. 5 right outside it that will take you to like more than halfway up the mountain and you can walk up for like 20 minutes from where you get off the bus; that will be cheaper... More
