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.

Rabbits everywhere, it was the cutest thing we have done. They literally run to you when they hear you coming. Most certainly a high light of our trip. Recommended to go

Rabbit island. Many hundreds rabbit are running freely. If you like rabbit, here is heaven island. You would like to do feeding, you should purchase vegetables before visiting this island because no any store in here.

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.

A mostly abandoned island with rabbits. Some of the routes are blocked off, the beach isn't open, very limited shops and restaurants on the island. Remember to buy your rabbit food before you get on the boat.

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!
