Did you know?

Aokigahara (青木ヶ原), also known as the Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees is a 35-square-kilometre (14 sq mi) forest that lies at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan. Due to the wind-blocking density of the trees and an absence of nearly any wildlife, the forest is known for being exceptionally quiet.

The forest has a historic association with demons in Japanese mythology and is a popular place for suicides. Ubasute may have been practiced there into the nineteenth century, and the forest is reputedly haunted by the Yūrei (angry spirits) of those left to die.
