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

The view from Mt. Inasa was great (deemed one of the best in Japan). However, the ropeway ride experience was average, with visitors crammed in a single carriage (with sub-optimal ventilation) and rather long waiting times.

View was really fantastic. Thanks to rainy and stormy weather, very calm, no people in the observation deck. I can see nice Nagasaki with panoramic view.

You can drive all the way up to the top of Mt Inasa and there are some parking spaces (about 20 only).
