Run as fast as you can! It’s a stampede! … of cute, little bunnies?
Oh, yes. Watch out or they just might cuddle you to death!
With a circumference of merely 2.5 miles, these rabbits have claimed the island as their new home and trust me, the tourists love it. Many tourists flock to this island for its rich history and natural beauty, but we all know the real reason people come here: to see the bunnies!
If we rewind to a darker time, this island wasn’t always the bunny rabbit paradise it appears to be. From 1929 to 1945, Okunoshima Island served as the base for the Imperial Army’s lethal gas operation. This island was the site where more than 6,000 tons of poison was secretly manufactured and tested.
Yes, that’s right … maybe now you’re getting an idea of what the bunnies were used for. Sad, but true.
