Photographer's Note

The view west from the cablecar terminus on Mount Inasa in Nagasaki. You can see the entrance to Nagasaki Harbour on the left. It was a surprise to see so much forest so close to a major urban centre.

"Mount Inasa (稲佐山, Inasa-yama?) is a hill to the West of Nagasaki that is 333 metres high. There is a cable car up to the top of Mt. Inasa from Nagasaki. A short walk from the cable car station are several buildings that house transmitters for TV and radio stations that serve Nagasaki and the surrounding area. Furthermore, there is an observation platform that is popular with tourists as it provides spectacular views of Nagasaki's 10 Million Dollar Night View (1000万ドルの夜景, Issenmandoru no yakei?). This is also a common place for young local couples to break off relationships."
