Nagasaki panoramas

I’ve seen Inasa-san in Nagasaki billed on tourist advertisements, along with Mt Hakodate and Rokko-san in Kobe, as one of the three “million dollar” night views of Japan.  That’s why I expected gazillions of people up here enjoying the views – just like the night a few weeks earlier I was on Mt Hakodate – but there were only a few people, and it was rather peaceful.Just like I did for Hakodate, I’ve created some panoramas of the view of Nagasaki from the top of Inasa-san, a mountain just to the west of the city.  A cable car runs to the top, so it was up there for sunset and spectacular views over the harbour and city centre.

The below photo shows the river valley (Urakami River) to the north of Nagasaki city centre.  This is where the atomic bomb exploded.  (The largish red brick building just above the road overpass bridge in the photo is a museum building at Peace Park.)

Here’s the view of the sunset, in the opposite direction to Nagasaki city.  This is the direction of the Goto Islands.
