Mount Inasa [稲佐山]
Observatory of Mt. Inasa
Mount Inasa ("Inasayama" in Japanese) is a mountain located to the west of central area of Nagasaki city.
Its altitude is 333 meters, and the top of the mountain is located about 1.5 km from the foot.
There is an observatory on the top of the mountain, and we can see the wonderful view of the Nagasaki city.
The distance between this observatory and the main spots in Nahasaki city is about 2 to 4 km, so we can see them quite clearly from the observatory.
