#15 Suicide Forest, Japan

#15 Suicide Forest, Japan

If it is called “Suicide” anything then it can’t possibly be in honour of anything pleasant now can it? Officially called Aokigahara, the Suicide Forest is a 4 square miles forest that lies at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan. Historically associated with demons in Japanese mythology, the forest has such a dense tree distribution that it literally blocks winds, making it exceptionally quiet and eerie place. There are many signs in both English and Japanese pleading people to reconsider but for whatever reason, this place is a hot spot for suicides.
