Rabbit Island, Japan
Situated in the Inland Sea of Japan is Okonoshima, also called the Rabbit Island. It’s a fairly small island, with around two and a half miles of area to be explored on foot. With its grassy terrain, beach resorts and natural beauty, the area is far from a typical island. The island is rife with hundreds of feral European rabbits, and no one really knows how they got there.
According to some theories, Okunoshima was once a place where the Japanese government tested poisonous gases in secret. The area was populated with rabbits as test subjects to study the effects of these chemical weapons, and it is speculated that the current population of the rabbits on the island are the descendants of those poor test rabbits.
