Places to go to Japan: Tokyo, checked. Osaka, checked. Hokkaido, checked. But hey before you plan your next trip to Tokyo Japan again, have you checked out the quirkier parts of Japan yet?
It would be nice to take a break from all the cosmopolitan buildings and typical tourist destinations where you may meet your Singaporean counterparts recognizable from the blabbering of Singlish (pretty sure everyone has that fair share of experience).
As “ulu” as some Singaporeans may find it, it was definitely an interesting experience to visit the land of Bunnies, an island called Okunoshima, located in the Inland Sea of Japan in the city of Takehara, Hiroshima Prefecture.
The island is accessible by ferry from Tadanoumi and Ōmishima and to get there one possible way would be taking the Sanyo Shinkansen to Mihara and transferring to the Kure Line local train. The travelling may sound painful but bunny watching is not the only activity there, theres actually a hotel, a six-hole golf course and a small camping ground. If I had you slightly convinced, remember to shop for some vegetables like carrots and cabbage to feed the little ones when you visit!!
View from the hotel entrance. Doesn’t it feel like a resort!
Bunny feeding! *drowns from cuteness*
At this point of time, trying very hard to refrain myself from kidnapping these furry balls.
Poor creatures seeking shelter from the summer heat. I was told that if I came during Spring or Summer there would be more bunnies hopping everywhere and that would have summed up the most perfect vacation on this island.
