Mount Inasa (Inasayama) is a 333 meter high mountain in close distance to Nagasaki's city center.

The summit can be reached by ropeway, bus or car and offers great views over the city. In fact, the night views from Mount Inasa are ranked among Japan's three best night views besides the views from Mount Hakodate and Mount Rokko.

Several television and radio antennas and an observation deck with restaurant are located at the summit.

How to get there
On April 1, 2014, the consumption tax increased from 5% to 8%, causing widespread changes to transportation fares. This page has not been updated yet, and some of the fees and fares in this section may not be up-to-date.

By ropeway

The ropeway ride takes five minutes and costs 700 yen (one way) or 1200 yen (round trip). A discount coupon is available online. Operation hours are from 9:00 to 22:00 (suspended for maintenance in early December). Gondolas depart every 15-20 minutes.

The ropeway's lower station can be reached in less than ten minutes from Nagasaki Station by frequently operating Nagasaki Bus, by taxi, or in a five minute walk from "Takaramachi" tram stop.

By car or taxi

Parking is available near the summit of Mount Inasa. The car ride from Nagasaki Station takes roughly 15 minutes, while a taxi ride costs just under 2000 yen on way.

By bus

From mid March to mid December, Nagasaki Bus provides a connection from Nagasaki Station to Inasayama bus stop, which is a 15 minute climb from the summit. The one way journey takes roughly 15 minutes and costs 150 yen. There are buses every 30-60 minutes.
