A Return To Disapproval Island

Remember Disapproval Island? It’s an actual place in Japan.

Wikipedia: “Ōkunoshima (大久野島?) is a small island located in the Inland Sea of Japan in the city of Takehara, Hiroshima Prefecture. It is often called Usagi Jima (ウサギ島?, “Rabbit Island”) because of the numerous feral rabbits that roam the island; they are rather tame and will approach humans.”

No kidding!

Cuteporter Marilyn T.’s friend Jay M. recently visited the island, and look at these Photos of Disapproval!












  1. I want a passport to Disapproval Island!!!

  2. I agree with Shaz–it’s a magical place! The buns all look so sweet and cuddleable.

  3. I would love to visit Disapproval Island, all those cute bunnies

  4. There are more photos on the Reddit post here: http://www.reddit.com/r/aww/comments/23l4qn/an_island_full_of_bunnies_the_babies_were_the/

    (although, be warned, there is one photo of one bunny with an injury of some kind which isn’t very nice 😦 )

    Maybe CO should organize a trip to Japan to visit some Cat Cafes and Rabbit Island, and other similar unbearably cute places? With a stop at Mugumogu’s house just to say hello? (I promise not to try to stuff Hana or Maru in my bag — Maru would not fit anyway). 😀

  6. Could ya’ stop by in NZ on the way to Japan? I wanna come too. Perhaps we could try to smuggle some cute out when we leave, Or perhaps they sell it at the duty free. They certainly have an overaBUNdance of cute and I’m sure they wouldn’t miss it.

    Oh. My. Gourd. I want to rescue them all and take them home and spay and neuter them and move to a large house in the country and become the crazy benneh lady.com.org…

  8. I swear those rabbits are all made of toasted marshmallows.

  9. Oh dear lord — the bunny leeeps in the bottom pictures!

    I’m with Clairdelune!! Field Trip! Field Trip! Field Trip!!!
    I swear those buns don’t look at all disapproving! 😄

  11. …faint *thud!*

  12. I like the “I disapprove of you while smooshing my face sideways into your knee” bun. And all the other buns too, of course.
