#8 of 33 in Parks in Nagasaki
Enjoy panoramic views over Nagasaki at Kazagashira Park, a green spot overlooking the harbor with its long suspension bridge. Quiet and attractive, the park features good observation decks. Around 35 minutes walk from the nearest station, the tricky-to-find park rewards your persistence by providing an excellent lookout over the surrounding area. Find the statue of legendary warrior Sakamoto Ryoma with his arms crossed; it stands on peak of the park’s steep hill.

  • There was no parking lot, so We went to the nearest station by tram and went up the stairs. Great regret on the way. I think you should go by bus or taxi if the time is right. The view was great. It was hard to go back to the school.

  • Located in Mt. Futo overlooking Nagasaki Bay, it is a park that is popular among citizens as a famous spot for Nagasaki Hata-age. It is also a famous spot for flowers in each of the four seasons. A statue of the hero of the end of the Edo period, Sakamoto Ryoma, is erected. It is a must-see spot for Ryoma fans. It is a 25-minute drive from Nagasaki Station to Mt. Futo, and from the place where you get off at Futoyama Bus Stop, it is 7-8 minutes on foot. There are many slopes in the park, so please wear shoes that are easy to walk in.

  • The view overlooking Nagasaki is wonderful, but it was quite hard because i walked up the stairs from the glasses bridge to this park. It's summer, too.

  • A nice park ontop the hill. With a statue of Sakamoto Ryoma - Samurai Pirate.
  • Fantastic view! Follow the "samurai trail" of historical pictures. Akari Hostel is very close to start.
  • One of my favorite parks to visit for a beautiful view of Nagasaki City! I climbed up via steps through a cemetary off of Shianbashi tram stop and though it’s a workout, it’s worth it. The cherry blossoms are beautiful, a statue of Sakamoto Ryoma can be found here, and there’s a small art museum (free admission).
  • I had a morning hike from my hostel near Nagasaki Station to Kazagashira Park and it took me around half an hour. Along the way I had to climb long flights of stairs through a cemetery. After passing through the cemetery, there are clear signs pointing to the observation deck at the summit. After I reached the top, I was rewarded by great views of the city and the harbour, without the crowds and noises that plague Mt Inasa. There is also a statue of Sakamoto Ryoma, a legendary warrior who played an important role in Japanese politics in the 19th century. As the park is located to the east of the city, a morning visit will give you better photos of the city as the sun is behind you.
  • Nice views of Nagasaki along with Sakamoto Ryoma
