Aokigahara is a place at the foot of Mt. Fuji which is beautiful yet dense and is a place where a lot of people commit suicide. Hundreds of bodies have been found here and as an effort to stop people from committing suicides, there are sign posts that tell people to reconsider suicide. As Mt. Fuji is sacred, some probably feel blessed to be able to die here.
The nature of the place is very foreboding and you will hear nothing but the forest when you move in just a few kilometers from the border. It is believed that the unsettled souls come to this place to scream their frustrations into the winds. The foresters have a job of looking for bodies in this forest and they come across them often, either hanging from trees or eaten away by predators.
