Rabbits Island - Okunojima


Do you know there is an island that so many rabbits are living in Japan?

It is the island called “Okunojima”, located in the Seto Inland Sea.

The island is only 4.3km around and 3km from Hiroshima mainland and was officially designated as a national park in the Sea.

During the World War II, Japan produced toxic gas in the island, so some of the old factory buildings are still there.

More than 700 wild rabbits are now living in the island and most of them are Oryctolagus cuniculus.

This kind of rabbits goes on digging holes, so you should be aware of tipping over those holes.

Also, you need to step aside their spoor.

Other than that, it is very rare experiencee to see so many rabbits at a time.

If you bring some foods like carrots early in the morning or in the midnight, you might have chance to seen and touch many of them.

It will be an unforgettably impressive experience for you.

Why don’t you stay over in the island and have a romp with the rabbits?
