I went to the opposite direction by mistake. I asked the train driver and got the direction. Take Line 1 "Shoukakuji-shita" destination train to "Tsuki Machi" for 4 stations. Get a transfer ticket when you get off. Transfer to Line 5 "Ishibashi" destination to "Ooura Tenshu-do Chapel" for 3 stations. It's about 10 minute walking distance after you get off the train.
There is an admission office one slope above the gate. The admission is 600 yen for adult, 500 yen for Group Discounted Adult ($7.50 or $6.25). Then, you will continue a few more electric slopes to get to the top, "Former Mitsubishi No.2 Dock House". From there, you will come down the hill and visit beautiful gardens, carp ponds, and historical houses. ( Seeing Glover Garden)
