Okunoshima was introduced by CNN and Times as the bunnies’ island in Feb, 2014, but they did not inform the directions to this island. Some of the tourists seemed to get frustrated, so I am writing it down.
We have to cross the sea from Tadanoumi port to Okunoshima by ferry. The round trip charge is 620 JPY. You can buy it at the ticket shop nearby Tadanoumi port. It is the short cruise of 12 minutes and the time table is as follows;
Bound for Okunoshima: 7:30, 8:30, 9:30, 10:30, 12:30, 14:30, 15:30, 16:30, 17:30, 19:05
Bound for Tadanoumi port: 9:13, 10:13, 12:13, 14:13, 15:13, 16:13

The free transportation bus to the public hotel is waiting at the pier. In case that you want to walk, it is a-15 minute walk to the hotel in a clockwise manner, or a 40-minute walk by a counter clockwise direction. The restaurant and the spa are in the hotel. If you forget about bringing the food for cute bunnies with you, you can buy pellets at the shop in the hotel.
For your referrence, this island was removed from the map during WWII because there were the military facilities. As it is now, some of those facilities can be seen as the ruin and there is the free museum to explain them.
