Okunoshima is a small island (4km in circumference) in the Seto Inland Sea, off the coast of Hiroshima Prefecture. This island is also called Bunny Island because it is inhabited by hundreds of wild rabbits, which originated from a few rabbits brought from outside in 1970s. It is said that these original rabbits were once domesticated at an elementary school outside the island.

Arriving at the island, you will soon be surrounded by a large number of rabbits in search of handouts. Pellet food is available at the inland's inns so you can have a good stroking time with them. If you love rabbits, this is definitely an awesome place to meet cuties and take a relaxing break.

Do you like rabbits? Well then this is the place for you! As soon as you get off the ferry to the island you can see them running wild everywhere! Make sure you pick up some food for them before getting on the ferry though because they don't sell any once you're here. Aside from the rabbits the views all around you are amazing, perfect photo opportunities. Only downside is the ferry service is a bit hard to make out and not frequent.

This place was great!

Remember to bring vegetables before you get in the island. You can buy vegetables at supermarkets or a local store.

I suggest to rental a bicycle or you can just walk around the island if you want to. Be careful when you ride a bicycle because the rabbits sometimes suddenly cross the road and you don’t want to hit them.

This place is worth to visit!

Nice and calm island with both a lot of interesting history and fluffy bunnies. The bunnies are amazingly calm and everywhere which gives great opportunities for photos. Perfect adventure for one day.

BRING RABBIT FOOD WITH YOU

The highlight of the trip to Japan! It's an absolutely unique experience, especially if you love rabbits. However, I can't stress enough that it's important to bring rabbit food with you when you come, as there is no place to purchase it on the island. It's also best to bring fresh vegetables, as the rabbits seem more receptive to that.

Also, don't forget to walk around the island, as the rabbits on the north side aren't nearly as frequented as the rabbits on the south, so they'll gladly still rush up to you after all the southern ones are full.

Super lovely place with passionate cute rabbits. Although nothing much to do on the island except walking around and feeding bunnies
