Okunoshima Island大久野島

3.5

Island

A small island four kilometers in circumference located within the boundaries of Setonaikai National Park. Known as Rabbit Island due to the 1,000 wild rabbits which inhabit it, Okunoshima is visited by large numbers of domestic and international tourists seeking to be soothed by the sight of these cute bunnies. There are also many rabbit-themed statues on the island which make for popular photo spots. At the same time, the island was the location of a poison gas plant operated by the former Imperial Japanese Army during World War II, and today many remnants of the army's facilities still stand. The Okunoshima Poison Gas Museum presents materials from that time period in an effort to convey to current generations the terror of war and the importance of peace.

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
