    The reason why I’m so obsessed and want to study this forest is because TFIL and Brennen Taylor went here. It’s beautiful minus the background information

    I dont usually watch videos about this forest because of my depression but mainly because the people in the video usually trivialize suicides by "oohhh this forest is so spooky" or "oohhh my godddd a teennnnt" like fuck off you little shits. But this video, as well as adoring your channel anyway, is super respectful and I appreciate that :)

    The thing I love about this from a date point of view, you set the bar so low the only way is up.. A second date could just not be in a suicide forest and your onto a win.

    When I was planning a vacation to Japan early this year (2017), I asked my girlfriend if there was anything she would like to visit in that country. After a little Internet research, she sent me a link about hiking in Aokigahara. This wasn't so surprising, since we hike through the forests of Northern California almost every weekend. Still, when she suggested this particular location, I could only laugh uncomfortably and say, "Uh, you want to go to the Suicide Forest?"
    After watching this video, though, I'm rather sorry we skipped it. I certainly understand if Aokigahara isn't your cup of tea, but I do love visiting unique environments like this. Thanks for the video!

    Thank you for the video, I'm sorry people were twisting your arm for this. I hope it hasn't spoiled the forest and what is said to be in there. We should go camping there for a few days to just see if nothing is there or if it's just a place where suicide happens. By the way my name is Cameron MacGregor.

    You won't find much of anything in the section of the forest you were in. The part you want to avoid is about an hours walk deep in along the path. It will come to a point that is "roped off". Beyond that rope deeper in to the forest is where people go to set up camp. You'll know you're far enough in when you start to see ribbons, rope, string, or tape wrapped around the trees and branches.

    That forest is very creepy...
    And the volcanic rock is the reason for the many holes and caves in the area.
    I would like to visit it at least once.
    -its north of Mt. Fuji and from satellite, it looks like a solid green blob with almost no space between the tree tops. the closest place to a real "Lavender Town"-

    It could be very nice and beautiful but there is a feeling of apprehension and sadness that you can feel. You have to concider the fact that people went there or were made to go their. During famines or or when they were unwanted. Given the magnetic properties of the earth I'm not surprised the emotional energy is strong there.

    Guys I'm going there to camp for a few days , I'll be posting updates fam.
    Day 1 . I walked a good 2 kilometers into the forest , seems quiet the air is full of a very delicate mist , the only sounds are birds and the ocasional creak of a branch , looks like I'll camp on this flat area surrounded by bushes.
    DAY 2 woke up relatively quick , distant eerie noises in
    the distance had me up through out the night . It's dawn and I honestly feel a sense of hopelessness and emptiness that I had never experienced before. Today I'm going On a hike , even deeper into the woods.
    Day 2 part two- it's getting dark and I seem to be lost , I've come to the conclusion that I won't be finding my camp site any time soon, better look for a dry safe place to spend the night.
    Day 3 . Woke up in a cold sweat , my backup batteries are running low , my phones about to die as I write this. I think I'm seeing things , I think I'm loosing my mind , Last night I slept 3 hours and I feel terrible. Don't know how much longer I can keep this up I need to get out of here.
    Day three part two - running low on water , seem to be going around in circles , I feel tired , feel exhausted . The light , I hear I see the light , I saw my mother yesterday walking along deeper into the trees , but she's been dead for 10 years, don't know why or how, I hear a voice it tells me to approach the light. I think I'll lie down here for a second.
    Day four . The light , it approaches but I need to make myself whole , I'll be made whole. But I need to get closer , ahh this rope this soft long sturdy rope , so beautiful , it has a purpose yes it will help me get closer. Aha I just need to tie it around that lovely tree , so majestic and peaceful , everything here is peace , and tranquility. What's that ? Yes I want to be a part of this magnificent realm, now to simply place it around my neck , like that mother ? ................ ..

    8:12 (Winter) Wren starts singing.  This forest is reminiscent of some of the temperate rainforests of the U.S.'s Pacific Northwest.  And yes, there are Winter Wrens there as well (now known as Pacific Wren).
