Okunoshima Island, Takehara
(4.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Get smothered by stampeding rabbits on Okunoshima Island--a former secret government location for the manufacture of chemical weapons turned haven for cute and cuddly creatures. Visit the museum documenting the poison gas production and the island's' role in World War II. Here, artifacts and accounts tell of the terrible plight of the factory employees, who often suffered horrendous side effects. Note that English information is slightly limited here. After the museum, counter the bleak history by getting acquainted with the current local inhabitants, who are very tame and will hop over you in search of something to eat. Plan your visit to Okunoshima Island and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Takehara itinerary builder.
