“What can I say about feeding the bunnies on Japan’s Rabbit Island? Nom nom nom nom nom… ”
That’s the text on a recent video featuring Okunoshima, aka Rabbit Island, in Japan by My BB Bunny. The account shares many videos of the island, all of them proving that being smothered by bunnies is so amazing that people will make it a vacation destination. And what better time to explore it, at least virtually (but maybe someday IRL!), than Easter weekend.
Head to the small island, in the city of Takehara five hours outside of Tokyo, by boat. Consider the different backstories of this land of rabbits — dumping ground for school pets in the early 70s, tourist attraction breeding program, mysterious post World War II spontaneous generation.
Next, upon landing, know that the rabbits are highly food-motivated. Want a new buddy? Feed that buddy.
During your stay you might be overwhelmed by bunny love. Don’t fight it. Give in. You’re on Rabbit Island now.
Finally, say good night to your favorite new friends. Then come back anytime you want to be covered in rabbits.
