To get to Okunoshima, you’ll need to head to Tadanoumi Port first. The port is in walking distance from Tadanoumi Station, two hours from JR Hiroshima Station on the Kure Line. Once at the port, check out the available ferries. There are ten per day. While waiting, you can pick up postcards, stationery, key holders and many other rabbit-themed products at the souvenir shop. Of course, you can also buy rabbit feed.
