About a quarter of an hour from Tadanoumi Port, Takehara City, this small island, just 4 km in circumference, is known for being home to some 700 wild rabbits, and attracts both domestic and overseas tourists seeking solace and healing.
The Poison Gas Museum and the various related sites around Okunoshima tell of the history of how the island was once known for housing a poison gas factory, and the importance of never again fighting wars.
The island is currently part of a national park, and contains a number of facilities such as the National Vacation Village Okunoshima, which offers accommodation, a hot spring, and local delicacies, as well as a campsite and the Okunoshima Visitor Center.
In addition to cycling, tennis and fishing, visitors can enjoy sea bathing and outdoor pools in summer.
