Yes we can! Today was my plan visiting Rabbit Island (Okuno Island). Thanks Andrej (former room mate in Takayama)  for that funny recommendation!

I really spent a great day on that island with many many rabbits. If you want to travel there from Hiroshima it’s only about an hour, but check the connections first, there are only a few good ones a day. The whole trip was covered by the Japan Rail Pass (only paid the ferry from Tandanoumi to Okuno Island for 620 YEN return). The easiest way to go there is by a Shinkansen from Hiroshima (30min) and change at Mihara to a local train (JR Kure Line for 20min)  to Tandanoumi. There was only about a 2-3min walk from the station (go right) to the ferry port.

Just make sure you purchase your food for the rabbits before you arrive on rabbit island (there is a Family Mart 1 min walk to the left from Tandanoumi station). On rabbit island you find only a hotel and restaurant, but they did not sell any food for the rabbits. So it was a little bit disappointing, but got some stuff from other travellers.
