2.Preparations in advance

I will introduce the key points that must be prepared before going to Ohkunoshima.

・Let’s bring Rabbit food and vegetables.

In the past, the accommodations of the island sold the bait of the rabbit, but do not sell it now. (Under the guidance of the country)
Thus, there is no means to obtain the bait of the rabbit in “Ohkunoshima”. You purchase it beforehand, and let’s bring it. (It is best if there is a tool to cut the vegetables.)

When you buy the bait of the rabbit, let’s choose “soft type” that child rabbit is easy to eat.

I always take vegetables and bait of the rabbits like this. but not enough.(○´艸`)

I always cut vegetables in the room of the hotel.
Kitchen knife sets and bait of rabbit was purchased at the following sites.

You can enjoy Okunoshima in a day-trip, but if you stayed at the hotel, you can enjoy more.
Because there is not the person other than a hotel guest early in the morning at night in particular, a rabbit is very active.
