I came here during the early afternoon in which evening would have been better, more picturesque. I had lunch at a restaurant whilst taking in the views. A lovely ride up the Ropeway as well to reach the deck.

The ropeway was under maintenance when we were there unfortunately. The only way up was the taxi. We read that there was a shuttle bus but it was no longer available. Take the taxi up which cost about 2000 to 2200 yen. And then you...More

The sunset was awesome. You can see the sun set into the sea from here, and the orange hue that enveloped the sky was very beautiful. I personally find that a better view than the subsequent night lights view of the city. Note that the...More

Got there at night. Far too crowded. Very big queue to take ropeway back. View is beautiful but not outstanding. Does not worth queuing so long.

Arriving at the top everybody of course goes to the Observation Deck. It is a round building of several levels high. In it you will find small souvenir stands, drinking machines, a resting area and a restaurant. On the top floor there is a 360...More

I visited the Inasayama Observation Deck on May 19. It was a Saturday afternoon. Quite a crowd, but still manageable to get your own space. The best way to get to this place is by using the ropeway. The topmost level of the observation deck...More

The view of the sprawling city across the harbour is magnificent, but when visiting late at night (after 9pm) none of the shops and facilities in the building are open. There isn't clear signage on how to reach the actual observation deck. Take the lift...More

Only rating this a 3 as the crowds were thick on the observation deck making it difficult to take your photos. People get to the railing and stay there.
