Suicide Forest in Japan

Like VICE News? Subscribe to our news channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News 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 http://vice.com Need help? In the U.S., call 1-800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

I didn’t come here because of Logan Paul, i come here all by myself, these days, I found out how cruel this world is, how the world turns and how the people looked at you. I can’t think clearly and my thoughts become cloudy. I don’t know which is good and which is bad. On this day, I already made my own timer. I set 5 years to decide whether to do it or not, and 5 years to execute. So i have to live a little bit longer.

I can't even imagine someone crying in the forest... 🌲😭🔪🌲🌳🔦😱🌳 I'd hug him/her... '^ '__-T~T I'll give them as much love as possible, 🤗😘💓❤ I'll find them their family photos, video clips, video call them so they can see the son's face surrounded with the forest in the background.. 📱 I'll find inspirational quotes, youtube channels on the internet, EVERYTHING to help... 😓🙏
This man has balls to go here if I were within 100m of that forest I’d sh*t myself And credits for the camera man

I was bullied in year 6 which was 2 years ago. I had these “friends” and one day I’d be laughing and being stupid in class with them and he next day they’d be teasing me. It got to the point where whenever they said something rude to me my eyes would burn and tears would come uncontrollably. I would get home every night and my mum would ask me how my day was and I would burst out crying. One day it was really bad and I got into our car and she asked me how my day was. She saw how upset I was and she took me straight back to my year 6 teacher who is still the most amazing person on earth. It became a routine. Everyday we would talk to my teacher. There was other girls that they would pick on but I guess I was the “main one”. I hated seeing them bully other people so I’d stick up for them, but I never stuck up for myself. They’d put me down about everything. One day we got our assignments back for “around the world” a country brochure assignment and they told me they hadn’t got even 50% out of 100, then they asked what I got so I said I got full marks and was very proud as I’d always put my best effort into it. They said that it because I was a suck up to the teacher and I was just bragging. So I burst into tears in front of my whole class. I ran out of the classroom and went up to our oval and chilled there for a bit. That lunch I was eating a cheese and bacon roll and they kept going on and on so I moved to a different, isolated spot, they would always follow me. People I loved told me “don’t give them a reaction and they’ll stop” boy were they wrong, if I ignored them they’d get worse. They followed me to the spot I was in and I had my hands over my eyes cause I was crying. I got so angry and fed up that I threw my cheese and bacon roll at the worst bitch, sorry for swearing but idc anymore. One day I tried to kill myself,kets just say I didn’t want it to be painful so I held my breath until I passed out, it never worked so I tried about 2 more times within that year. I wrote a note and gave it to my mum, she said I was overreacting and she never understood that I was serious. I was silently begging for help. “People who want to kill themselves do it immediately” she said. That’s when I felt that I would give up. My mum- the person I loved most didn’t believe my woes. The girls in my class had a group “counselling” with a lady called Dani. She helped at school but not when she wasn’t there. I started having private talks with my teacher, then I accidentally told her that I wanted to die. She hugged me as I cried. I finally found someone who I could trust. A few days later in the morning before 9am we had a meeting, her me and my mum were there, the bullies were listening in on us outside the classroom. That lunch they were questioning me “why are you depressed or whatever?” They asked so I yelled back “I want to kill myself, you bitches” and they ran off and told my teacher that I wanted to commit suicide, but it wasn’t a helpful and sympathetic act it was an act to make themselves look innocent and get out of trouble. We went to year seven and I had overcome being depressed by spending time with family. I wanted to give up but I knew that I was put here for a reason. I kept going and look at me know! I have a boyfriend I enjoy year 8 and I don’t even see those girls anymore. If I could do it so can you. If plan A doesn’t work just remember you still have 25 letters left. Even if you can’t talk to someone you love try your other close people because I found hope and a new love in my teacher and I will be forever grateful. YOU DESERVE THE LIFE YOU WERE GIVEN ❤️❤️😁😘😇

I don’t agree at all with vice showing pictures of victims, it’s not necessary and it could encourage people.
Ezequiel Daboin (7 days ago)
Bullying is something totally disgusting and there are people who commit suicide because of it, and it is a reality. But also on the other side of the world where there is poverty, they see suicide as the only option to end the pain, I saw my mother being about to die without me having money to pay for her operation, my father going to another country to look for a better life for us, my sister suffered seizures and the treatments were not available in the country, I was 18 years old, I did not do anything, I was a person supported by my parents and I felt it was a burden. I had the feelings for the floors I felt that all this was going to be eternal and if to this we added my suicide my family would be totally devastated. Every night I cried before sleeping, I talked on the phone a lot with the chicha that I liked at that time and thanks to it it made me distract myself from my problems and for that I thank you very much. I say that if you think that it is only happening to you, look around you and you will see people with worse problems and with much more encouragement and it would be like a lack of respect, you have to be stronger! I say that this is the problem of American families, they raise their children like little angels and they do not prepare them to live the real world and when they collide with life, they think that it is a very big problem and that there is no solution. create a self-esteem and never let yourself fuck for others and not fuck them

I think this Japanese man is one of a kind. It is not his job to do what he is doing, but he cares, allot ! That is something we don't always find anymore. I pray he finds our Heavenly Lord Father and believes in Jesus Christ so that he can help others find their way in life.

*_I have a reason why they do it in that exact forest! Since hey are sad, they want to be forgotten, when Mount Fiji erupts, their corpses would burn into ashes and never be seen again. That's why I think that._*

We are all connected. We can never be alone. Because you feel alone, remember, there are people who feel the same. Let it be known that you are loved. Even by hearts that feel they are alone. Stop the redundancy of emptiness by knowing and believing that you are a gift simply because you are alive.

Xeng Xai Lee (14 days ago)
I can sympathize with those who had lost their lives. Society doesnt give a damn who you are but what you do. For a example you are working 18 hours a day just to finish a assignment that is due within 3 days and only 50% done. Knowing your gonna get fired and replaced. Parents say they only want your happiness, in truth they want you to work/study hard so you can make them happy, but what about yourself ? What do you want ? As time goes on by we are multiplying by the day almost 8 billion people in this world and resources are getting scarce by the day. History remembers the living, leaving behind a legacy that is spread through by words, writing and action. In death people will forget who and what you are a loving son/daughter father/mother friend/ co worker and so on. You are just a NAME and a body just to fulfill someone else desires. A NAME that could be used for someone else. A forgotten legacy only to be remembered as something else. As I too thought of suicide.

Kokoro Tsurumaki (17 days ago)
The moment someone commented on your suicidal posts, just to stop you from doing it...means that you're not alone, and those strangers care for you. So face your life with courage even just for them...a more happy future is about to come for your life, and you just have to wait.
