Explore Aokigahara: Japan’s Haunted Suicide Forest

35

So the Aokigahara Forest in Japan, heard of it? well, if you have then I’m sure you have considered it a holiday destination before but if not listen up because I have some things to tell you:

1. It’s a place where people go to die.

Yeah. Be prepared to see some shit, man. You got to be cool with seeing some folks who’ve given up on life. The ground at Aokigahara¬†is littered with bodies. There’s also the occasional one that swings from a tree, and by that I mean they’re well hung – hooray, puns!

2. It’s a breeding ground for money.

Along with all of the littered bodies, wallets are strewn everywhere too. I know it’s harsh stealing a dead person’s things, but if you feel bad you can always pretend that you’re a Pirate.

3. It’s eerie.

No shit, it’s not going to be a walk in the park is it? This is the kind of place where you could be whimsically trundling along whistling ‘High Hopes’ when all of a sudden a body cascades down a tree and smacks you in the face.

4. You’re going to get a feeling that your life is better than it was before.

You haven’t lived a day in your life until you’re surrounded by people who were worse off than you. You have some bills to pay, your girlfriend left you? boo hoo. On the plus side at least you’re not part of a tourist destination hellhole where you’re being eaten by Squirrels and poked with a stick.
