Two tourists feed hundreds of rabbits at Okunoshima Island on Monday in Takehara, Japan. The Island is often called Usagi Jima, or "Rabbit Island," for its large rabbit population. The rabbits have become a tourist attraction, with many visitors coming to feed the animals. During World War II, the island was used as a poison gas facility and was so secret that local residents were told to keep away. Today, visitors can still spot ruins of the old forts and chemical factories.
