man it does not cheer me up to hear Jesus loves me, when I'm down. don't want to hear that a non existent thing loves me. Nor do i want to hear people tell me they believe a non existent thing loves me. that makes me feel even more alienated, knowing that people are living outside reality. So Jesus loves me.... but you don't, no one else does? OK, thanks.

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

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.

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

Loren KilldeerLoren Killdeer (2 months 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.

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.

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 :)
