Aokigahara forest, which is also known as Sea of Trees, once was called as a suicide forest. Aokigahara forest is located on the northern-western part of Mount Fuji. It once was considered as one of the most prevalent suicide sites in Japan, though it has recovered its reputation and now used as a popular tour spot. You can actually book a tour through travel agencies and you can enjoy the natural beauty through this tour. In this article, we will look for this history of Aokigahara and how here has been changed nowadays.
a suicide forest?

Japan has been trying hard to remove the dark reputation of Aokigahara; however, it is actually true that a lot of people committed suicide inside this forest. It is said that more than 20 people attempted to commit a suicide in this forest in 2010 and 54 of them completed. Major means of suicide is hanging or drug use. You can find a sign saying something like ‘Life is a precious gift from your parents.’ The existence of this sign enables us to think what has been happening in this forest.
A few years ago, one famous Youtube star visited this forest and recorded a real dead body on his camera. The point was that he displayed this video through his Youtube channel. Since he had millions of subscribers, tons of people watched this video clip and he was criticized due to his act of mocking dead person. It must have been not a good idea to feature real dead body on one’s video and share it world widely.

As mentioned above, the local officials tried and they still are trying very hard to decrease the numbers of suicide in Aokigahara forest. Instead, the image of forest is ready to be transformed as a place where you can fully enjoy nature beauty. Located in the northern-western part of Mount Fuji, Aokigahara is not just an eerie forest anymore.
You may feel like this forest is very scary and you will see any ghost here if you visit Aokigahara. However, the reason why here is very silent is it is because of forest, which is full of trees and nature things. This forest was originally formed by the devastation of Mount Fuji’s eruption more than 1000 years ago and you must be able to find surprising things through this old-age nature. Don’t be afraid, you can also use private or group tour service to visit here.
I know some of you may be interested in finding dead bodies in this forest. I haven’t searched yet but there may be some tours giving you a guide to find the dead bodies. Or some people will actually visit there with their camera to find spiritual things. However, personally I think it is not a good idea to find them. There is nothing related to laws even if you visit here for this reason; however, I want you to understand dead person and their families’ feeling as well. Taking a video clip and release it to the internet will be not be a good idea.
