The Aokigahara forest is situated on the north-western side of Japan’s famous Mount Fuji.  Over the centuries, many people have entered the forest, but fewer have left it. This is because, sadly, the forest is notorious for being one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide. As a matter of fact, the number of people taking their own lives in this forest is reported to be second only to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
