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. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently. Originally released in 2011 at vice.com Need help?

  1. i think they want to see something beautiful before they die

  2. it’s called a troll they are find in mostly popular videos and feed off rotten fish and hate.

  3. It’s impossible to die heroically by committing suicide? What about I Am Legend?

  4. They probobly want to die in a vefry peacful place

  5. Seems like a happy place.

  6. A mind is fragile and can become weak, sometimes you need others to give you strength.

  7. I think Ill stay beliving the real GOD,because the person who gives pleasure not pain,who forgives and is merciful is better than your false god that wants to cause pain and make you burn in a fire forever.

  8. A real tragedy. I will never understand how people can waste their lives like that.

  9. The reason why kids are commiting suicide because they’ve gotten weak,like really your grandparents had to deal with worse but you cant handle 1/10ths of what they went though? But really most people did sucide in the “old days” because of love, now we do it because were weak.

  10. You can’t take the internet go back to real life.

    Why was this recommonded to me ;-;

  12. This is Vice’s highest-viewed documentary, obviously because it’s extremely beautiful and terribly unnerving and just so goddamn thoughtful–but I think another, perhaps overlooked reason it’s so popular is because it’s not being narrated by /anyone/ who works at Vice. I think if you guys replaced every anorexic manlady with tight pants and a contrived personality on staff with elderly, sagelike Japanese men, more people would be endeared to your cause. #Vicejournalistslooklikecockholsters
