Origin[edit | edit source]

Aokigahara, also known as The Sea of Trees, consists of various types of flora and fauna along with pools of porous lava which absorbs sound. This helps provide visitors with a sense of solitude hard pressed to find in a natural setting elsewhere. However because of this the forest has a historical reputation as a home to yurei (ghosts in Japanese mythology). In recent years, Aokigahara has become internationally known as one of the world's most prevalent suicide sites. To the point of a sign being constructed at the entrance urging visitors to think of their families and seek help. It is estimated that between 2002 and 2011 over six hundred people had taken their own lives within this forest's borders.

Effects[edit | edit source]
