Rabbit Island, Japan


Like something out of a fantasy film, this island off the coast of Japan is overrun with cute little bunnies. Okunoshima Island (or “Usagi Jima” – Rabbit Island) is home to a large number of wild rabbits. During World War II Rabbit Island, Japan was used for factories which produced chemical weapons. After the war it was turned into a national park.

Today the island has a hotel, golf course, camp ground and lots and lots of bunnies! Hunting, dogs and cats are not allowed on the island.

Getting there: You can reach Okunoshima Island from Tadanoumi or Omishima by a 12 minute ferry ride.
