In this collaboration between JR-WEST and Setonaikaikisen Group, SEA SPICA aims to showcase spectacular views of the many islands within the Seto Inland Sea, allowing all passengers to enjoy brand new cruise sightseeing experience!
With SEA SPICA, you can travel to Hiroshima (Okunoshima) Rabbit Island, the paradise for bunny lovers! It is famous for its large population of rabbits and you can get to encounter bunnies in most areas of the island. As most of the bunnies are well cared for, visitors to the island are encouraged to buy food and feed these adorable creatures that are so used to human contact. Just be ready to run as they are prone to chase when you run out of food.
