They say it’s one of the best nighttime views in Japan. ‘A breathtaking 10 million dollar view’. 333 feet (101 m) from the city center, Mt.
The difference between visiting in the morning, evening or at night:
Morning until Afternoon: Least crowded. Especially in the morning, you can experience the view without many other tourists. Even without the beautiful night view, it’s still a great experience in daylight.
Twilight / Dusk: Right before dusk it usually gets more crowded. Even more after dark. Top tip: Be there just before dusk to experience the fascinating change from daylight to darkness, while the city lights turn on slowly. Check sunset times here: http://www.timeanddate.com/sun/j...
After Dusk / at Night: Usually crowded year-round from dusk till 10 PM. That’s the time when both the last bus or the last ropeway runs (operating from 9 AM to 10 PM). After 10 PM it thins out and you experience a much quieter place. Great experience around midnight. However, staying that late means you have to pay a taxi to get back down. Otherwise, you’d have to walk and navigate down in the dark. You could also get up there and back down with your own (rental) car.
Open year-round (maintenance closure early December). Consider that even in summer it’s windy and colder up there. Bring an extra sweater in spring/summer/fall and a thick coat in winter, when it’s really cold and chilly on top of Mt. Inasa.
In general, to avoid heavy crowds don’t go during the following very busy times in Japan:
End of Dec - Jan 4: New Year’s travelers
April 29 - May 5: Golden Week
July 19 through August: School summer vacation
Come here and get a very impressive view over one of Germany's biggest cities and leading financial centre.
