Okunoshima Island – Japan’s Rabbit Paradise

The rabbits of Okunoshima are wild, but well accustomed to human presence.
Sometimes they even approach tourists for snacks, especially during seasons when natural food sources are low, hopping on to laps much to the delight of visitors. Carrots, cabbage and rabbit feed (sold at the island hotel for about $1 a cup) are what they prefer the most. Rakuten, a travel company, offers a tour called ‘Let’s Play with Rabbits’, in English and Japanese. -- Oddity Central - Collecting Oddities
