  • I was not aware of the goings on here during WW2, my sole purpose of my visit to Okunoshima was to see the rabbits but it's great to get the odd history lesson, the exhibits were original and even though there wasn't much English translation I understood what was on display, worth the visit.
  • A small but informative place to know how about Japanese history
  • You can learn learn due to ōkunoshima once erased from the map of the Japan Islands. Seeing the dark history of chemical weapons, I was reminded that the misery. Admission is 100 yen. (Exhibition of photography is prohibited. ) I think this Museum a must-see, as once happened in playing with the rabbit came to this island, but to know that. To visit the Museum here, has left traces of the poison gas everywhere in the island, so you have time come.

  • I think where we leave to future generations. That was forced to work at this place when I was a student in elementary school teachers were doing well. Woman teacher, had time to rattle in voice.
