Suicide Forrest

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.

Thank you for posting this OP.
I think i remember seeing this article in a copy of Vice i picked up. Very interesting. Beautiful forest.

Isn't it crazy how the corpse was decayed, fully clothed.
Aren't humans fragile.

It takes a real kind-hearted person to do that sort of job. I wish they could patrol the place more and maybe save some lives.

I think people kill themselves in such a beautiful forest because it's beautiful. Whether you're a nature lover or not, wouldn't you want the last thing you see before you die to be that beautiful?

It is really interesting but no thumb because not only does it feel wrong to thumb for funny but this post defeats the purpose of this website. Then again I am anon so whatever...
