Okunoshima (Bunny Island)4.3
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.

Pretty nice place to spend the afternoon and a single night. We camped out over night instead of the hotel. I recommend bringing some low lighting flashlights if you do this and marshmellows to toast. Also dont forget to bring lots of lettuce, carrots and other food for the rabbits!

Quite worth a visit. We took our bicycles on the island and cycled a round. Watch out for rabbits.

Expect tons of rabbits! We went a bit out of season and the rabbits far outnumbered the humans on the island, well worth a day trip en route from Osaka to Hiroshima

way better than the cat island. rabbits are more friendly and cleaner. also had some ww2 history on the island which was a bonus.
