This place is tricky to find and a bit of a transport logistic challenge, however your children will LOVE you for it. A very Japanese only secret place popular with family weekend trips. The rabbits here are so tame they come bounding out from the bushes to hand feed cabbage and carrots from your hands. It is not unusual to see a little girl with 4-5 kitten bunnies sitting on their lap eating a cabbage leaf. Located on the gorgeous Inland Sea between Hiroshima and Kyoto. Take your picnic. Minimal English spoken here but the bunnies don't mind!

Yes, there are packs of feral bunnies that will climb all over you and eat out of your hands. And there're some random ruins of chemical weapons plants. It's certainly worth a full day of exploration if you're into either or both of those things. Doesn't hurt that the hotel on the island is decently run and has good food.

Getting there isn't terribly tricky; Google Maps has most of the details, but take the train to the ferry (it's about half-dozen or so stops on the local off the Shinkansen). Walk out of the station and turn right, then take the first street right to the port. The ticket booth for the ferry is the first door to your right as you're walking down the street toward the docks.

What a surprise it's a not very well known tourist spot. My sister sent me a video clip about this girl 'chased' by heaps of rabbits in Japan just before I left for Japan, did a search and found out where and how to get there. The closest big city would be Hiroshima. I'd recommend to do some homework about the transportation before going there.

once get off the ferry, about 10-15 rabbits roaming around...as you walk along, heaps and heaps of them coming to greet u, especially if you have food (rabbit food i'm talking about), or they hear the rubbing noise of plastic bags! The rabbits are very friendly.

As a rabbit lover I enjoyed the island to the max, even if u're not a crazy rabbit fan like me, i'm sure those little rabbits will melt ur heart! it's a good place for people of all ages!

Remember, BRING RABBIT FOOD!

Okunojima, also known as Rabbit Island, is an adorable and fascinating place filled with rabbits! The island was originally a WWII gas manufacturing plant.

The rumors suggest that either the rabbits are the descendants of rabbits used to test the poison gas on, or they are descendants of pet rabbits released on the island.

It is a great place for all ages. Even if you don't wish to learn about Okunojima's ugly last, the rabbits are super cute and friendly!

Traveling tips. You can purchase rabbit food at Tadanoumi port for 100 yen, however you can also bring your own veggies, such as cabbage, for 50 yen! Rabbits come running when they see food or hear plastic.
