Aokigahara: Suicide Forest

Posted in Death, Video with tags , , , , , , on February 15, 2012 by elgrayso

Aokigahara is a forest that lies at the north west base of Mount Fuji in Japan. It is the second most popular suicide destination in the world (San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge being the first) and over 100 bodies are discovered in the forest each year. VICE made an incredibly interesting short documentary on the forest which follows a park worker on suicide patrol. The documentary is only 20 minutes long and is well produced and fascinating. I couldn’t get the the video to embed, but I highly recommend clicking the link and watching it:
