Japanese Suicide Forest

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.

I have been there, there are a bunch of signs that are anti suicide everywhere, and there are these holes in the ground that have an article of clothing or ripped up/burned pictures of people. When I was there, I defiantly felt a very negative energy about the place. Just being there felt wrong.

I learnt about this from a manga and several anime.

This guy's a ******* hero. So his job (or at least one of his jobs) is to go out and look for suicide victims? That's deperessing

"i think the way we live in society these days has become more complicated. Face-to-face communication used to be vital, but now we can live our lives being online all day. However, the truth of the matter is we still need to see each other's faces, read their expressions, hear their voices, so we can fully understand their emotions. To co-exist." Beautiful

Suicide is just a code name for Operation: Slender
