Go for the night view

Beautiful night view. We drove there and only had to pay for parking. Look out point and all is free.

The drive up the long, narrow and winding road at night was well worth the view that you are rewarded with when you finally reach the Mt Inasa Observatory. This is considered one of the top three mountain top night views in Japan for nothing. I came on a night where the skies were clear and enjoyed a wonderful panoramic... More

We took the cable car up during the day and the views were well worth it. You can see the city and down the river to give you a good understanding of the geography.

We walked from the Streetcar stop to the cable car station. Its was an easy walk and so easy to find. The view we got from the Cable car ride up was simply gorgeous. Nagasaki city is such a charming city and the way the town is built up along the harbour and on the hills surrounding the city, its... More

It is awesome up there with wonderful views. The observatory peak can be reached inside by a gradual ramp plus about 20 steps, or outside via a spiral staircase or just take the elevator. Despite a bit of cloud we could see plenty and especially the marvel of the expanse of Nagasaki. There is a restaurant up there and a... More

Easily accessible by cable car, the observatory on Mt. Inasa offered one of the best views of a city I have ever experienced. Try to be there after sunset to catch the view both during day time, as well as at night - it is spectacular!

We reached there by ropeway on a clear day and stayed at the observation platform to see the sky gradually turned from light to dark blue with the city lights becoming more prominent. The hour long stay was definitely well worth it. From the base station, we walked across the road and took bus svc 40 to the train station.... More

We went up the cable car to Mt Inasa and walked around the site. The view was breath taking on the port and city itself once the weather cleared a bit. It is much cooler on the top with a constant wet breeze.

To be enjoyed from the deck above the building on the top of the mountain is a "phenomenal" view to the southeast of the "big inlet" (which joins the Nagasaki Bay further south) with most of the city or the "city's core" with big buildings around it; also on the deck are big display signs of the popular sites of...

It's a place not to be missed in Nagasaki. View is great. You could get free bus ticket from JR station to the ropeway station. However, there is restriction in terms of timing, e.g. I opted for 1st session and boarded the bus at 1915. I had only 30 min at observatory as I have to be at bus stop... More
