Historic and nice peppered with cobble stone roads, mini restaurants and scenic views, take your walking shoes as it's a bite steep for Grandma , garden at the top and cathadral church. We stopped for icecream but there are nice coffee shops along the way

Nice little tourist shopping area which leads to a park and a catholic church. The usual souvenir type purchases can be made as well as food and the best ice cream around. Steepish walk up.

The view from the top is great, you can see whole Nagasaki from here, and the best is it is for free! You can get there by elevator or by foot via the stairs.

The sky road is basically a lift that goes up the slope - quick, easy and FREE! Great views of the city form the tops and a further conventional elevator can take you up to the Glover Garden.

The flow is very structured. Take the escalator up and follow the arrows. They will bring you around the entire place and to the exit. View from escalator is so-so.

This is the only way for the older generation to get to the top. The steps may be left to the youngsters. It takes less than a minute to get to the top as long as no-one wishes to exit at other levels.

I had a sore knee and expected easy access to the gardens from this approach but had to walk a long way round and uphill.

Tram Line #5 goes to Ishibashi stop, which is the last stop. Glover Sky Road is on your right hand side, within walking distance.
