Rabbit Island (Okunoshima)

Okunoshima is a small island between Hiroshima and Shikoku famous for its friendly rabbits and poison gas factory ruins. The spectacular scenery makes it a pleasant day trip destination from Hiroshima or Okayama. Regular ferries depart from near Hiroshima's Tadanoumi station or on weekends from near Mihara's Bullet Train station. Enjoy camping, swimming or bike riding around the island after the short ferry ride. Why not even get a ferry on to Omishima Island and keep riding all the way to Shikoku along the famous Shimanami Kaido (Sea Road)?
