The small patches of pink/purple flowers in the trees makes it a bit creepy if you think to hard about it.

Author Flo ( ago)
I thought it looked kinda pretty

Author Purple Iguana ( ago)
Don't get me wrong, like it's creepy and all but it's absolutely beautiful.

after this video i listening tokyo teddy bear.

Author Brooky Larson ( ago)
The sad thing about this place is the stillness. People go there with their mind undecided if they want to commit suicide or not but the stillness and being alone really leaves the mind go wonder.

I watched a documentary here on youtube. He was a person that finds the bodies I believe. But long story short he found someone in a yellow tent. He sat down and had a chat with him. When he first started talking to him he sounded really taken aback. He was really fragile. His mind mustve been wandering alone. I really do hope that the man had saved his life. (Vice suicide forest)I really like the guy in the documentary. Speaks with such carefulness. I hope you all go watch it

Author Keira Ashley ( ago)
I went there yesterday and that sign now says HELL with the O crossed out -.-

"literally billions of films'

your friend is good at holding the camera very still

Author MassVt ( ago)
Suicide forest. McDonald's. Having your date hold the camera...
Very smooth.

Author Lim Ming Quan ( ago)
On a completely different topic, what camera are you using?

Author Harry t ( ago)
This guy is the best. He should have his own show.

Author Fida Ruzki ( ago)
That is one scary place.

A little Japanese girl to the right of the screen looking at the camera.

His best vid yet

Author MrHappyAdjustableSpanners ( ago)
chris you downed the contrast not upped it -.- for god sake chris i'm starting to think I cannot believe any of your words

Author Desired ( ago)
that bag probably had aids on it, tbh.

Author Jupiter Five ( ago)
Maybe the people who killed themselves ware originally just going to McDonald's, and the food's drop in quality made them think, What the hell!

Author lifeinpictures ( ago)
How could one man be so likable and so punchable simultaneously?

Author blazednlovinit ( ago)
French girl has a cute voice :)

Author khaleesi ( ago)
You're a cutie with the glasses tho 👁👄👁

Author Casanova Kurai ( ago)
I actually really liked that video XD.

Author sirplantain ( ago)
Well if the forest didn't kill her, the McDonald's certainly will have. Death by dark evil souls or death by McNugget? I'd choose the forest.

Author Tayn Tain ( ago)
i was really expecting u to put earth wind n fire on the video haha, T-T 2bad

I was about to spam "Notification squad" in comments sections but I found this, so I guees I'll be 8mins late.

Author Kai Thomason ( ago)
when you said you to listen to a song when your sad. I thought of the september and you said it. Genius

Author PlsRedScreen ( ago)
looks like a nice place to hang out

Author Ghouse666 ( ago)
Can't even visit a fucking forest with out visiting Instagram, Jesus fucking Christ power off the cell phone for one hour of your fucking life. This is an amazing place in the world only tainted by humans you should be ashamed of yourself.

Author Sage Blackthorn ( ago)
May be creepy, but it's also the location of some spectacularly beautiful caves. Perhaps you can return to show some The Ice Cave that Atlas Obscura talks about in this article.

Author HowlingSnail ( ago)
During the final scene The Power of Love from Back to the Future started playing and I genuinely thought you'd dubbed it over until I realised I had it open in another tab.

Author Rishav Koirala ( ago)
You were on a date with your camera, were you, Chris?

Author MotiOmppu _ ( ago)
We were going on a date on mc donalds but we went to suicide forest! Resident evil 8 :)

Author Akira Terashima ( ago)
what soundtrack did you used?

Author YouDontKnowSponge ( ago)

Author Timothy Mills ( ago)
did you smash

Author AnnPeek ( ago)
You're starting to sound like Alan Partridge. :D

Author z3219825 ( ago)
walk 100m outside the track and you'll see the rope/tape they use to navigate the forest in case they wish to leave. very peaceful and calm

Author Loren Killdeer ( ago)
I find it lovely, actually! And if you are positive, there is nothing more romantic than a walk by the forest with your loved one. Specially when it's dark, you are holding hands and then you turn to her to say something silly and you realice that she is not there and that the one is holding your hand has a really pale face and no eyes.

Author ARX 351 ( ago)
my very first date with a girl was at a cemetery!

Author Rick Kent ( ago)

Author Mental Inks ( ago)
Around 4:58 - that thing at the right though...

Author Kristina Beaton ( ago)
You need to go to the spot where all the ribbons are, those lead to "things" ... :O
I'm glad you didn't go there though... xD
cool video

Author Kieran ( ago)
Dude I was legit just the 10,000th like on this video :O

Author kelly shea ( ago)
I would be more afraid of running into big ass spiders than angry spirits

Author hasukkai ( ago)
you must call the police if you find some dead bodies,
heard most of them commit suicide not far from the road
because they want to be found somehow.

Author Keri in Okinawa ( ago)
If you look between the trees from 6:13-6:18 it really does look like a shadow person is sitting, facing right, in the not-too-far-away distance.

Author madaraa utchihaa ( ago)
you didn't go in the restricted areaaaaaaa u pussy xD

Aaaaw the Ocean of Trees the legendary Aokigahara. Okunoshima and Aokigahara are the top priority destinations to visit for the interested thrill-seeking adventurer and bunny fan. Please make your next forest video during a rainy thunderstorm night with proper night vision equipment to enhance the eerie mood a little bit :)

Author Kirstin Scott ( ago)
Don't know what you're talking about Chris, this would be the best date ever for me.

Author Danastri Ciptaningrum ( ago)
Am I the only one thinking it was quite a beautiful forest? Putting aside the suicide thing of course

Author One Video ( ago)
u did not even go into the real part of the forest

Author Justin Flynn ( ago)
*Thumbs up* for the worst date *EVAR!* :D

Author Lilith Lolita ( ago)

Worst date ever, because you were detoured from mcdonalds lol

Author Doctor Buay ( ago)

Is this the same forest as that horror movie " Forest "?

Author 박지혜 ( ago)
Am I the only one who played September on the background?

Author Young JayB ( ago)
You didn't go deep enough or through the "do not enter zone" that's why you didn't see anything, or have bad or no signal.

Author Out Of Place Ninja ( ago)
I hung myself there in the late 1970s early 1980s. Nobody will believe me though.

Author Megumin ( ago)
"You should go to the suicide forest" sounds like a mad diss

Author May Bee ( ago)
I'm actually more shocked about the fact he took his date to McDonald's than him taking her to the suicide forest. Just me? k

Author Juan k Aviles ( ago)
Does anyone else see the two eye-looking things in the crack at 4:55

The ground has a cavity.
Because trees are growing on lava.
There is also an unknown cave.

Author Martian Shane ( ago)

A camera, wholes everywhere, now all you need is 127 hours of foutage :) and maybe a knife.

Author Monkey D Theories ( ago)
Did you find any memes?

Author Onshi ri ( ago)
Oh the irony that first moment brought

Author WildKat25 ( ago)
I don't understand why it is so scary. I live up in Canada and there are tons of various forests that look like that and are silent. I go camping in them all the time. I'm assuming it is scary because people have killed themselves. But meh, people die all the time in forests. You can even hear birds in the background. Sorry but I think city slickers just hyped it up. Marshlands in Canada are more scary; one misstep and you can find yourself stuck and/or drowning. Hell, you have to worry about Grizzlies, wolves, wolverines, cougars, boars, etc. I bet this forest barely has bears in it.

Author GGBABE ( ago)
pretty dim

Author poymfw ( ago)
I enjoyed it immensely actually. We were almost lost but found the main road and back into the other side of the forest. It was a fun sunny day....and yeah, you can get lost so you need a good sense of direction. Happy exploring.

Author Noah Upchurch ( ago)
plot twist he planned on going to mcdonalds alone

Author Gaurab Chatterjee ( ago)
What, no skulls? No fair.

With glasses in the suicide forest: 10/10 would still bang.

How do you know that bag wasn't haunted?

Author Alejandra Martinez ( ago)
This made me sad really sad

Author Union Down ( ago)
That's a pretty tree at 4:33 on the left :)

Author Auditore ( ago)
you can't piss off the spirits because spirits don't exist lol

Author Thomas ( ago)
the forest is not silent at all. birds can be heared all the time. even in this video

Author Randy Thompson ( ago)
earth wind and fire <3

Author LupoWolf ( ago)
"This is the worst date ever" - Just hold the camera xDD

Author Over 50 ^IQ ?EQ ( ago)
The Jesus Loves You sign said, 'Suicide prohibited. If you plan to commit suicide in the forest, please leave the forest immediately. If you are carrying any sharp and dangerous items, please don't forget to also not take the bus. Thank you for coming to Mt. Fuji. Have a nice day.'

Author Yazanico ( ago)
"I wonder what's over that hill" more wood

Author Kimberly Gill ( ago)
