Dream Travel Destination: Bunny Island

For many years, I have dreamed about visiting Japan. This country, with the busy cities, yummy food, cute products and blossoming cherry trees is my number one travel destination. One of the main reasons for that is Bunny Island. This small island, originally named Okunoshima is located in the southern part of the country. It played a key role as a poison gas factory for much of the chemical warfare that was carried out in China during World War II.

After the war, the factory was abandoned, and somehow rabbits got on to the Island and started reproducing. Dogs and cats are forbidden on Bunny Island, and it is also forbidden to go hunting there.

These days, Okunoshima is home to hundreds of rabbits, and the island is a tourist hotspot for bunny addicts like myself. The bunnies are tame and will eat out of your hands.
