  1. Hi Stanley,

    Wow! You have discovered some really interesting facts about Japan.I must admit that I did not know that Okunoshima is an island full of rabbits! I wonder where they all came from originally? Someone must have migrated to the area with their pet rabbits and then allowed them to breed (and breed and breed)!

    I don't know much about rabbits but I would like to visit the island to see how they live and how they care for so many rabbits all in one place! It's quite ironic that we're writing about rabbits as my son (Aronui) recently asked for a pet rabbit. I might think about getting him one for Christmas...

    Keep up the great work, Stanley! You are posting such interesting blogs :)

    Cheers,
    Rachel

  2. Kon'nichiwa Stanley,

    I agree with Rachel, you have found some really interesting facts. It makes sense to grow watermelons like that, although I wonder how they get them to be that shape? I love eating watermelon during the summer, it's so refreshing. What kind of fruits do you like?

    Could you imagine working in that building in Osaka? I imagine it would be very noisy! But I really liked your fact about the rabbit island. It would be a lot of fun to visit there I think. Do you have any pets?

    Great second blog Stanley, keep the effort up :-)

    Cheers,
    Dan.
