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.

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

Nice place but keep in mind that everything closes early here. And the that the Kure line that takes you to this island only comes twice an hour so plan extra travel time to get here. Our train ride back also got delayed by 2 hours so...
Also, they don't really tell you the ferry times properly after around 5pm, so make sure you know how you are getting back when you get there. There won't be any staff to help you on the other side after around 4pm. Bunnies are cute though!

I went during golden week and the rabbits were completely over fed, also might have to que for quite a while if you want to get on the ferry back 1h+. My recommendation is to not go during weekends or golden week, but try and go during weekdays.
Very nice small island with good views, history and cute rabbits.
