We stayed in a hotel on the way to the top, so we walked for an hour and discover the amazing view ! We went down with the ropeway, a bit pricy but quick and smooth ride.

The nighy view is really impressive. It was windy and very cold up in Mt Inasa. We ended up did not stay long outdoor. Taking cable car up to My Inasa is quite an experience. Definitely will recommend if you like night view. Try to avoid windy or rainy night.

Visiting Nagasaki, a place you must not miss is a trip to this spectacular viewpoint. A ropeway will take you there for about 1200 Yen round trip, and the guide will give you the history of the place in english AND japanese, though there are no japanese speaking passengers aboard. Reaching the top, there is an observation tower, surrounded by... More

The Ropeway is a misnomer, since this is a cable car ride to the top of Mt. Inasa. The view is spectacular day or night. The night view is enhanced by the Hikari Tunnel, which is only lit at night. There are a lot of stairs here, with limited elevator service. The observation platform at the top is a great... More

You can reserve free connecting bus seats from Tourist Information Centre located at Nagasaki Station or take bus to Mt. Inasa cable car station. The round trip cable car's ticket fee is around ¥1000, relatively expensive but acceptable. It's similar to Seoul Tower cable car, but unlike Seoul Tower, there is only one single observatory tower to admire the view... More

We drove to the top as our daughter fears ropeways! We did this during the day. Imagine the evening offers a more spectacular view. A daytime view is still breathtaking! We easily could locate the atomic bomb museum. My husband the history buff showed us the initial aim point from this view too. Took a break at the cafe. Kids... More

Through 15-people ropeway, you could climb this mountain in 5 min From you get in the ropeway, your heart beats faster because of beautiful lights in Nagasaki Thats why Nagasaki choosed to the 3 most beautiful night seeing in the world Ps. Personally my best view was Sapporo's city view

Take the Ropeway up to the Observation Deck. Offers spectacular views of the city especially at night. It gets very windy/cold at the top at times. Notes: 1. There is a 10% discount if you bring a printed coupon from the Nagasaki Ropeway website 2. The nearest tram stop is Takaramachi, which is 1.1 kilometers away. Suggest driving to the... More

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
