Aokigahara Forest, Japan: Aokigahara, also known as the “Sea of Trees,” is a dense forest located at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. The forest is known for its thick foliage and the many rocky cliffs and crevices that can be found within it. Aokigahara has a long history, with references to the forest dating back to the 8th century. In more recent times, Aokigahara has gained a reputation as a place where people go to commit suicide. It is believed that the forest’s remote location and its reputation as a place where people can go to disappear make it an attractive location for those considering taking their own lives. In recent years, authorities have worked to try to reduce the number of suicides in the forest by posting signs encouraging people to seek help and by increasing patrols. Despite these efforts, Aokigahara remains a place associated with death and tragedy.
