The Aokigahara Forest is the most popular site for suicides in Japan. After the novel Kuroi Jukai was published, in which a young lover commits suicide in the forest, people started taking their own lives there at a rate of 50 to 100 deaths a year. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently.

Death is sacred, the man who they interview has my respect. What a purposeful job
Just discovered this forest for myself this morning. I figured this place would have something on it.

Sad but interesting.
I'm surprised it hasn't been invaded by music video makers and b grade movie directors.
Thats what Detroits for bro.


But that place would be a trip for a camping......trip..
They sweep for bodies annually? I think I know when I would take my vacation days.
I want to go there this year when I go back to Japan

It would be trippy to hold a seance there.
one of the more famous vice documentaries.

I wonder if they inserted the obligatory japanese are unhappy/depressed with the leading suicide rate.

i actually think the US suicide rate is higher but the numbers are fudged.
