Mt. Inasa Park (稲佐山公園)

Mt. Inasa Park is a beautiful park in Nagasaki. It's at the top of Mt. Inasa (obviously) and you can get there one of three ways.
You can drive to the top. That way takes you through narrow winding roads with beautiful views on either side of the mountain.
You can hike up to the top. I was told that takes about 90 minutes from a shrine near the base. We were running out of daylight when I was there, so that wasn't an option.
Your third option is the Nagasaki Ropeway! Sadly, it was closed for maintenance the day we were there. I was told that it was to re-open on the 16th of December.
There is a good size playground at the top, as well as an amphitheater, plenty of open grassy fields, hiking trails, a dog park, gardens, and a spectacular view!
