When I was living in Japan my husband and I made the easy trek over to Ōkunoshima – also known as Rabbit Island. It is a magical little island filled with free range rabbits. After that I did a blog post about how to get there (so easy), the history (pretty crazy), and some of what you will see (RABBITS!!). Take a look at it here. I did then realize that I had never shared any of the videos, and really….who doesn’t love video of a bunch of bunnies hopping around. If this doesn’t push Ōkunoshima to the top of your must visit list, I’m not sure what will.
The weather was absolutely rubbish while we were there – I almost got sea sick on the ferry ride and then almost blown away by the wind….almost. 😉 The rabbits didn’t disappoint though. As you walk around the island, the rabbits know the sound of lettuce bags rustling and feet shuffling and literally out of the forest they come to great you. It is truly a one of a kind experience.
There were only a handful of people there the day we went. Maybe it was the weather, or maybe people just don’t yet know how magical this place is. Are you ready for an adventure?
