Okunoshima Island, locating in the Inland Sea of Japan, and being designated as Setonaikai National Park. It is also called “Rabbit Island” because there are many hares in this island.
The reason there are many hares now is “8 rabbits having been held at the elementary school were released to this island in 1971, and they reverted to wild.”
It is said there are about 300 hares in this island.
There are many tourists who come here for communicating with hares and/or for camping. During the Pacific war, there are facilities creating chemical weapon such as poison gas. Because of that, the area around this island was deleted from the map for keeping the secret. That’s why this island is/was called “Island deleted from the map” “Poison gas Island”, too.
Every rabbits are very hungry… :( +25
Carrots are rabbits’ favorite. It doesn’t matter if they are really hungry or not!
Rabbits are always hungry, even we give enough food. +8
How cute… I don’t know why but I remember dogs’ behavior by watching these rabbits.
I wanna live, well, need to live there! +3
I wanna go to Rabbit Island as literally! +12
Then, do you wanna go there with me!? X3 These rabbits are so cute >3<
I heard carrots are not good for rabbits’ health because it contains lots of sugar.
Always giving carrots to rabbits is like growing our children with candies.
Eh? These rabbits are all wild?
We need to thank rabbits for changing the chemical weapon island to the world’s happiest island!
If I could go there, I wanna go there with my girlfriend. She would show me the happiest smile ever.
I understand that they are not abused by humans. They are not afraid of human at all.
This is the world’s cutest place! +4
How cute!!! I got gooseflesh because of impression.
I really wanna visit that island. Just for caressing rabbits!!!
I just screamed “Bunny-chaaaaan!” like 10 years old boy… I should punch the wall to get me back….
I worried the number of rabbits would increase even they have enough space for living…
Rabbits habituated in this island long time ago. I guess the number today is the limit that this island can hold them. Actually the number of hares haven’t changed for years. +3
Every rabbits are very friendly to humans…
This video, and the exist of this island make our lives beautiful. Thank you for sharing this!
Japan : even the island which has chemical weapon experiment is beautiful… +7
By watching this video, I could feel so happy.
Actually I’ve watched this video 50 times today… This music and video makes me happy! ^_^
I remembered Watership Down. This story has the beautiful ending.
For getting back my manliness, I needed to listen to death metal and eat one bowl of chutney.
It’s the first Youtube video which makes me so relaxed. w
As long as watching this Okunoshima video, there is no grass on the ground. I think they increased their species too much
Well, but they get enough food by humans, so it’s okay.
I wanna go to this island and lay on the ground. Then, rabbits come close to me, and take me to their hidden home…
