Okunoshima (Bunny Island)4.3

Go to this spotGoogle Transit

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.

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.

Very interesting place. Definitely worth visiting especially if you are an animal lover. Bring plenty of rabbit food. Not sold on island. The hotel had an onsen. A restaurant and a cafe. There is tempura and ice cream and seafood and Curry and beer pretty much everything needed

One of the most stunningly beautiful places I've ever been. The ferry ride over can be a little crowded but please don't let that turn you off coming to this amazing place. The cute as heck bunnies are just scratching the surface of an interesting place.

How can you not rate this less than 5 stars? Loved it! One way is 310 yen for the ferry and double for round trip of course. Lots and lots of cute bunnies. No problem bringing food like carrots, cabbage, lettuce but no human food like cookies and processed foods. Just vegetables. I spent about 4 to 5 hrs here.

If you like rabbits, being up close with them, and the dark history of japan, this island is for you!

Spent easily 4 hours on the island, and could have stayed longer! Highly recommended
