The Aokigahara forest in Japan is one of the most visited places by tourists.

Japanese spiritualists believe that the suicides committed in the forest have stained Aokigahara’s trees, generating paranormal activity and preventing many who enter from escaping the forest’s depths. Complicating matters further, there is a common experience of compasses being rendered useless by the rich deposits of magnetic iron in the area’s volcanic soil. It’s really hard to get signals from the mountain.

Some say that the spirits of the unknown are still there, latched onto the forest, attracting tourists and visitors into the forest to commit suicide. Its a negative energy attached to someone. The dead looks for darkness in you and feeds from it, making you another victim.

The forest has really impacted Japan. Each year, the amount of suicides keep increasing from a couple hundred to thousands. Don’t get me wrong, this forest is beautiful, big, and contains many trees. Its like a crazy loop of wonderland. The next time you think of going on a trip, why not consider going to Japan to see the forest and experience something you have never experienced before.

    I do not think anyone should commit suicide because everyone deserves to have a life, but this would be a great experience and all but seeing the suicide notes on the trees and stuff could be a little bit disturbing. This is only because you reading a death note and you know that someone died right there, like that would be a scary thing to witness. Do you think you will catch chills through your body walking through there? I know I would..

    Sounds very interesting and makes me want to go tour and visit the area but also creepy! I’m not sure if this is just a gimmick to attract tourist and views but this sounds very mysterious. I’d definitely feel the chills and just feel the weird vibe going through my body.. Some people might find this disturbing and in a way it is because suicide is a serious thing. Everyone deserves to live. Its crazy to read about these things because they definitely makes you wonder..

    I find it fascinating, however, disturbing at the same time that a place strongly associated with suicide exists. Suicide is so far away from most people’s minds, for some even nonexistent, but with the forest as an embodiment of it, it makes it appear much closer to us. This ‘serious thing” has its own place in this world, which on one hand is good for raising awareness about suicide, but its ultimate purpose is sad and should never be forgotten.
