The hostel we stayed at provided us with discount coupons which enabled us to the do the to and fro cable car ride in half the price. The cable car is fun and try to stick to the window on your up or down to see the city. Take a two way ticket and don't miss the last ride or... More

I walked from the Catholic Centre to the top of Mount Inasa and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Buddhist shrine at the bottom, a secret, forgotten shrine part way up and then being so impressed by the stunning views on the top. I would recommend the climb and even more so the restaurant. For such a world-class venue as the Inasa... More

We decided to walk here from the tram and as it was quite hot we nearly wore ourselves out! The ropeway was relatively expensive but it was worth it. Because of the distance we walked we missed seeing the view in daylight and at sunset, but it was a stunning night view. The best surprise was preparing ourselves to spend... More

Just another hill right? Maybe to some, but its hard to beat a view like that. We caught the gondola up just before sunset, we had a discount card from our Hostel which made the trip very cheap. Once at the top we marveled at the view, then had an amazing Champon dinner at the restaurant watching the sunset before... More

Lovely view. A must when in Nagasaki. I didn't think it would be as nice as it was. Rope car ride was lovely and a bit frightening.

I visited there with my mother, wife and young infant daughter. I really love this place. It takes 5 min to reach there by Nagasaki rope way, There was an excellent view in the evening. I recommend all Nagasaki visitors to visit there once. The roof top is little bit cold and the wind blows strongly. So I recommend to... More

We opted to go during the day as we had read reviews that it was very busy at night and we were glad we did. A pretty amazing view, choose a clear day as it can get quite hazy in Nagasaki. It only takes 5 mins to get to the top via cable car which is very new and clean.... More

The view from the top of Mt. Inasa (Inasa-yama to the locals) is breathtaking. If you have 2 or more in your party, I recommend taking a taxi instead of the ropeway; the cost is about the same and the taxi is much more convenient.

It totally justified its name of one of the best night views in the world. Some things to note when you plan your trip up: it would be good to track the approximate time when the sun sets, so that you can estimate when the ropeway starts to get crowded. Please do eat something before going up, the restaurant on... More

Took the Cable Car/Ropeway up to the top of Mt Inasa. Climb up the spiral staircase to the top of the observatory and you get some great views of Nagasaki City and Nagasaki Port. We visited during the day time but I understand the the night view is in the top 5 in all of Japan. Public location accessible by... More
