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'm sorry for the other people committed suicide and I was really thinking of the skeleton you found owned the Abbonted car because I saw a key so I'm just saying so now I'm scared of them now
hunter malone (8 days ago)
The worst part is they say only a hundred or so die but there are probably hundreds out there that r not being found. People who won’t be found for years or that went out so far but I hope that isn’t the case such a sad topic unfortunately
Antidote54 (8 days ago)
Not many people know, but the real problems start after death. The face of the angel of death approaching and ripping your soul out of your body. That's the point when one realise they shouldn't have taken their life, but instead have turned to the one true God for help and guidance! Life is a gift, cherish it.

This world is a fucking twisted hell hole, exactly why they probably decided to die. I wouldn't like to be in this world either.

Jamie Michaela Lazo (15 days ago)
I feel sad. Depression is really bad. If only our families/friends don't expect too much from us then we won't feel useless when we fail. :( when I die, I don't want my father to see my remains. He is the main reason why I feel so depressed and undeserving :(

I wonder how many of those people didn't actually commit suicide. you could easily stage a suicide and kill somebody. that's so so sad.
KenChuwah (18 days ago)
I also had suicidal thoughts before but I was a coward to do it. And what makes people suicidal is FIRST their school and pressures. And SECOND is their job. I I got suicidal because of school. I hate school. It makes my life bullshit
