  • This island is railway before World War II poison gas factory, island sees the train shutters closed and is. Protective clothing with poison gas, mask and antidote in case of the ceramic mixing vessel quietly tells history. Poison gas weapons now being used throughout the world. I'm disgusting eye skin out but this is a chemical weapon.

  • And poison gas were made in this scenic peaceful Seto Inland Sea. In the exhibits and photos froze up my spine. That was a terrible time, please see with my own eyes. The hotel is prohibited.

  • A balance to all the cute fluffy bunnies - poison gas apparently used in China - awful & how soon we forget.
  • amazing ww2 gas Musesum
  • There's lots to see here and the kids would love it, there seems to be classes that they hold for kids like workshops as you can see things that have been made on display.
  • 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
