wow, this is so fuct but considering the state of japan i can understand.


"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."

yeah, I don't know if you remember the Japanese downsizing stories back in the early 90's? I was working in a big office building then, and actually getting downsized right here in America, so it was kind of poignant...

In Japan, if you got a desk near the window, it meant you were going to be "out" soon. So if you got a desk near the window, it was like shear hell and people would kill themselves just based on that. Anyone remember this?

I am Japanese. And this is not a new thing, this has been going on since before written history. Mt. Fuji is pretty easy to see from long distances, and many Shinto believe in forest/tree spirits, so people would travel long distances to be with them.

I had camped in Aokigahara with a friend with a voice recorder and a couple of cameras, and we heard some pretty creepy voices on the wind. I did not get any sleep that night. We found a couple of new pictures that had not been weathered yet and a campsite with a new tent and cooking supplies abandoned. Obviously someone had wandered off to kill themselves.

I need to camp out there one day. This is the stuff I thrive on.

Aokigahara is VERY haunted. I've heard all the stories.
