My photos don't even do justice to how beautiful these views of Nagasaki were. The lights are amazing across the bay. In addition to providing a higher vantage point, the deck has some restrooms and food for sale as well. I definitely recommend going at night, but it can get windy, so consider bringing a windbreaker.

We visited this place by the time we reached Nagasaki. It's a walking distance from Nagasaki station, but there is also a public bus going to that direction.

You need to go to the Fuchi Shrine Station and take a ropeway to reach this observation deck.

We paid ¥1,250/person for a round trip and it only takes a few minutes to reach the top.

From the observation deck, you can view the entire city of Nagasaki and some of the nearby islands. They said that if the weather was good, we could see the Goto islands as well.

I would recommend you to visit this place when you visit Nagasaki in the future.

We walked here from our hotel, was an easy walk. We caught the lift up and then the Ropeway. This was at night time and the views at night with all the lights was fantastic, but was very cold up the top. Well worth a look.

We got on the tram (5 minute journey) to the top of the mountain. We were warned that due to foggy weather, we may not be able to see much, but we insisted. We planned to see the sunset on the observatory, but due to the fog, we couldn't, but we were still able to see the night view of Nagasaki area! It's a spiral indoor area, so you wouldn't have to worry too much about being cold, unless you go to the roof and see the best view! There's a restaurant on the top where you could enjoy food and view at the same time, but not necessary as the food is not that special. Took the tram (every 15-30mins) back down and we searched for better food back in town.

Took the tram and got off at takaramachi stop, from here it’s an easy 15 minutes walk to the cable car station. The roundtrip fare of the cable car is Jpn$1230, it runs every 20 minutes.
Went on in late September at around 6, beautiful sunset and it was quite windy, temperature was around 20 ish and it definitely got colder into the night.
But it’s worth the wait, beautiful view of the entire city, lucky to spot hashima island also!

The Mount Inasa Nightview in Nagasaki is a unbelievable place to visit. Words can`t explain this incredible place like the way they should and this view needs to be seen to be believed. Without a doubt one of the most scenic views in all of Nagasaki and probably in all of Japan. It is a place that I try to bring every visitor that comes to Nagasaki as it really brings out the highlights of everything Nagasaki has to offer in terms of beauty and nature from its scenic location to its panorama.

There is even a restaurant at the top of the lookout that offers spectacular views all through your dining experience. The food isn't gourmet but the scenery more than makes up for the lack of dining quality. As for me, I like to bring some coffee and snacks to the top of the Mountain, sit back and watch the sky slowly turn into a million stars, virtually untouchable on all levels. Depending at the time of year this transition from dusk to night can take minutes to hours so please come prepared with the right amount of clothes, snacks and drinks, the alcoholic kind is acceptable as well as drinking in public in Japan is the norm, and not necessarily frowned upon. 2 Thumbs up from me!

The free shuttle is dumb. If you take the first run, you're supposed to take the first run to return. The problem is that the shuttles are independent of the cable car operator. When you arrive, you have to get in line with everyone else to buy a ticket and go up. It's the same on the way return down. Per the schedule, you really only have 10 minutes at the top. HOWEVER, you have to walk about 8 minutes at the top to get to the view point. Be prepared to miss your return run or just avoid this farce altogether.

This is probably the most famous night viewing spot in Nagasaki City. You can only reach it by car or taxi but it's really worth coming up here. To describe this place with one word, breathtaking!
