How to Get There
Mt. Inasa is accessible by bus or by car.
From Nagasaki Station, get on the bus no. 3 or 4 and get off at Ropeway-mae stop. From there it's a two-minute walk to the Nagasaki Ropeway's Fuchi-jinja Station. Catch the ropeway to the top.
For a one-way ride on the ropeway, it will cost you 720 yen, while a return ticket is 1,230 yen. The view from the cable car is absolutely worth the fare.
If you have a car, driving may be an easier choice. Bear in mind that parking spaces are limited and may be full on busier days.
From Fuchi-jinja Shine you can also walk up Inasayama. This usually takes 50 minutes. Be careful, however, as it is not advised to walk this trail at night on account of wildlife.
