About this sight

Located in the Inland Sea of Japan, this small island is accessible by ferry from Tadanoumi and Omishima. It is famous for its large rabbit population which has earned the island the nickname Usagi Jima, or "Rabbit Island". Aside from the rather tame rabbits, visitors can also enjoy campsites and walking trails. In addition, the island also provides several places of historical interest as it played a key role during World War II.
