TGIF! Via BUN ISLAND!

This weeks edition of TGIF! comes all the way from The Big J/Bun Island AKA Disapproval Island, which we have featured several times before. “I recently had the pleasure of visiting Okunoshima Island (aka Bunny Island!) It’s a far trek from where I am staying in Osaka (3 trains and a ferry ride, 3 hours each way) but totally worth it to see an island filled with happy, hoppy, floppy bunnies. This little guy jumped up to sit next to me on a bench. I got some cute pictures of him nom nomming away on bunny treats. I hope you can feature him on a Bunday* in Nosevember! Your fan, -Julie A.”

Bun Island UPDATE!

Remember how we said there was gonna be a video series of BUN ISLAND? We weren’t kidding, folks. Here we go with installments two thru four, from Scott Y.

Epic Mealtime On Bunny Island—The Sequel

Let’s rewind back to June- we posted this story about Sender-Inner Scott Y. going to BUN ISLAND and getting swarmed by BUNS.

Not a bad way to go.

But luckily he survived the BUN onslaught, and this is his wrap-up video- he says “The trailer include snippets from most of the videos in the series (not all,) and the best highlights from each of those videos.”


And here is a playlist of all the BUN videos he took!

Epic Mealtime On Bunny Island!

Updated with photos! C.O. has featured “Disapproval Island”Rabbit Island” (Okunoshima, Japan) on several occasions. Now, there’s gonna be a VIDEO SERIES. WHAT. Sender-Inner Scott Y. shot this video and the following photos.


Scott says “The bunnies that live on this island are super friendly…”

“…yet fearless when it comes feeding on the food provided by the visitors.”

bunny2
“They love to chill in the shade when the sun is out. In one of the photos, a row of bunnies chill on the street, in the shade provided by the curb.”

bunny3
“The baby bunnies also roam wild on this island and have no reservations in getting picked up, with the hope of getting a yummy treat I guess!”

Bunday: Disapproval Island UPDATE!

‘Member when we took a trip to The Big J’s Disapproval Island? Little less than a month ago. Well…Cuteporter Sarah P. sez…we missed a Bun.

“On this site, there was one photo that struck me as absolutely Cute Overload material. It’s the picture of 4 bunnies and one is looking up and licking his lips! SUCH a cute tongue.”

>OK, Sarah. But we did all these?

“Well yes, sort of. I apologize for not being faithful enough to realize you’d posted it. But you left out my fave picture. One day…when you revisit disapproval island (round 3, I guess) PLEASE try to include the picture in the screenshot attached.”

>Like Yul Brynner always says in The Ten Commandments: “So let it be written…so let it be done.”

Let’s Take A Bunday Trip To…

(say like you’re in a big ominous-sounding echo chamber:) …DISAPPROVAL ISLAND!!!!

When we received the images for our latest edition of the C.O. Cat Café World Tour, Robb S. also said, “I know you’ve covered Rabbit Disapproval Island before, but my friend Jonelle went there very recently and got some pix, in case you’re interested.”

Interested? It’s BUNDAY for goodness sakes! Let’s hop to it!

In Which Miranda Visits Disapproval Island

We’ve made a few trips to Disapproval Island AKA Bun Island AKA Rabbit Island AKA Usagi Jima (ウサギ島)– let’s see how things are going lately, thanks to first-time Cuteporter Miranda M. She titled her email “C.O. soldier reporting from Bunny Island!” (That’s her below.)

As you might guess, this got our attention:

“Long-time reader, first-time submitter. Here are pics from my trip to Ōkunoshima. I first heard about it through you guys and fulfilled my dream of going there last September!”

“So to get there you take a ferry from a little town in the southern part of the Hiroshima Prefecture, Tadanoumi. It takes about 5 hours from Tokyo. The ferry station is a short walk from the train station and you can just follow the signs, or just follow the other bun lovers, there was a whole group of us when I did it.”

15585298084_6de6c4a61e_o
“The ferry costs about $15 and takes about 20 minutes and runs about every 20. Once you dock, a shuttle takes you to a tradition Japanese hotel, a Ryokan (below,) which is the only functioning building on the island beside the employees’ apartments.”

16020349310_1e85927085_z
“It cost about $200 a night to stay there, but you have to be a part of a Japanese travel society, something like AAA I think, to book a reservation. I was lucky enough to have a friend in Japan who was a member and she made the reservations.”

16020371070_7d29102a37_z
“You can go out and hang with buns at night after most people have left. The hotel has a great little gift shop full of bunny-themed goods and a small cafe with noodles, coffee, and ice cream. The hotel is also where you can rent a bike to explore the island. The island is only about 3 miles long and a mile wide so you can explore it in a day.”

15587861823_762e9d0bc6_o
“The bikes are the great part because the rabbits that hang out in front of the hotel are total lazy-buns from all the attention they get, but once you take a bike and get away from the busy areas all the rabbits will start running out of the bushes and putting their feet up your legs to greet you, like this guy below.”

Important– there is no way to purchase the fresh vegs that are the buns favorite on the island. You have to plan ahead and grab some before you go. You can buy pellets to feed them on the island, but if you really want the bun love we all desire…make sure to stop by a market before you get on the ferry.”

“Also the island is tropical so it is super hot and humid most of the year but in Japan it is pretty risqué to show your shoulders and décolletage, so if you don’t want to scandalize the Japanese buns and their other visitors, come dressed in something light but covering.”

16206904992_0f9323e7ee_o
“Because it is tropical the trees in the more remote bits are filled with very un-cute black and yellow striped spiders which can get up to be the size of your palm. As un-cute as they are, they are not poisonous and won’t harm you, so just keep your eyes down on the buns…not up in the trees.”

16207710765_1d67647bcd_o
“The island is a bit remote and rural, so not a lot of the bun hosts speak English, but I didn’t have a problem at all. We all spoke the universal language of bun-love.”

16207724435_2ec32724c3_o
“Oh yeah, and be prepared to cry when you leave because it is the most magical, bun-filled, wonderland. I know I did.”

16206895182_e41a3868e8_o
“I hope that helps!”

Scott Y. says, “I would like to introduce to you twin baby Holland Lop bunnies, Legend and Star! Legend is a baby chinchilla colored girl, while Star is a baby blue-eyed white boy.”

unnamed (2)
“The photos show them being best of friends, and how they love to snuggle on the couch in every cute position possible. I’ve also included an incredibly Cute photo of them being held together.”

Look Of Disapproval: Not For Buns Only!

Normally the Look Of Disapproval (#98: A look of disapproval is always cute) is associated with our Wascally Wabbit Friends. This fellow, though, wants you to know he’s up for some disapproving action too.

The Look Of Disapproval Is NOT Limited To Buns (Cont.)

As we saw a couple of days back with Otis, The Look Of Disapproval is not limited to Buns, although they clearly do it best.

However.

Birds can also give off The Look, (not including those grumpy little Finches, they always look like that) as evidenced here in this first DISAPPROVAL-HANCE CLOSEUP:

Let’s let Sender-Inner Gina S. take ovah from heah. “This Mother Robin did NOT like pictures being taken of her offspring..”
