Suicide Forest in Japan 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.
Aokigahara Forest, at the base of Mt. Fuji, is commonly called 'The Sea of Trees' because the foliage is so thick it is almost completely shrouded in darkness.
