The summit can be reached by ropeway and car and offers 360 degree views over the city especially on a clear day. The night views from Mount Inasa are ranked among Japan's three best night views. The observation platform provides spectacular views of Nagasaki's "10 Million Dollar Night View". It is a view that you can't forget in a hurry as well because the sights and the scenery from this location so close to the city is undeniable.
The Mount Inasa Yama Nagasaki location is a wonderful way to start your tour of this amazing city of Nagasaki by understanding its special geography and topography which makes it a unique place. Without a doubt, one a clear day unobstructed views of the seas and mountains make this lookout a special place and a must on anyone's itinerary whilst they are partaking in some leisurely sightseeing in Nagasaki. I usually stay away from the ropeways as I prefer to walk or drive up to the summit but for those without a vehicle or who have limited time in fabulous Nagasaki the ropeway is the choice of transport needed.
Well worth a visit, comes highly recommended especially on a super clear day where Mount Unzen to the east and the outlying Goto Islands to the west some 60 to 80 kilometers away can be seem with ease! I have been lucky to capture the sights on just this sort of day!
