Mt. Inasa Park Observation Platform

This place has long been beloved by the citizens as a landmark of Nagasaki City, but since being designated as part of the "World's New Three Most Spectacular Night Views" and one of "Japan's New Three Most Spectacular Night Views," it has become a nationally renowned observatory representing Nagasaki's night views. It is now also known as a location possessing various night view brands such as one of "Japan's Top 100 Most Beautiful Moon Views" and a "Night View Heritage of Japan." From the summit at an elevation of 333m, a 360-degree grand panorama including the illuminated Megami Ohashi Bridge and the cityscape can be enjoyed. Surrounded by mountains, the basin-like terrain features lights from homes and streetlights scattered midway up the mountains, creating a scenic beauty unique to Nagasaki reminiscent of twinkling stars on the ground. There is a restaurant in the observatory with easy access. You can visit there using public buses, ropeways, slope cars, or exclusive shuttle buses for hotel guests, which makes it easy for first-time visitors to come.
