I just came across this 'some other place'
and was instantly intrigued.
Seems I'm just too uneducated for life, but eh, learning every day nya.
Suddenly ScreW's "Tree of Seas" ... no wait, head...
じゃなくて "Sea of Trees" made a lot of sense. Kinda want to listen to it now. No wait, I will fill the silence with it nowFrom wikiさん:
Aokigahara (青木ヶ原), also known as the Sea of Trees (樹海 Jukai), is a 35 km2 forest that lies at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. The forest contains a number of rocky, icy caverns, a few of which are popular tourist destinations.
The forest, which has a historic association with demons in Japanese mythology, is a popular place for suicides; in 2002, 78 bodies were found, despite numerous signs, in Japanese and English, urging people to reconsider their actions.
Due to the wind-blocking density of the trees, and an absence of wildlife, the forest is known for being eerily quiet.
[...] The forest is a popular place for suicides, reportedly the world's second most popular suicide location after San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. This popularity is often attributed to the 1960 novel Kuroi Jukai by Seichō Matsumoto, which ends with two lovers committing suicide in the forest. However, the history of suicide in Aokigahara dates from before the novel's publication, and the place has long been associated with death: ubasute was practiced there into the 19th century, and the forest is reputedly haunted by the ghosts of those left to die.
Since the 1950s, more than 500 people have lost their lives in the forest, mostly suicides, with an average of approximately 30 counted yearly. In 2002, 78 bodies were found within the forest, replacing the previous record of 73 in 1998.
Seriously, I like... want to go. So bad.
Here's a site that shows pictures of the... deceased and their... whatever they left behind
. There actually are pictures of dead people though, so ... be warned.
Heck, night time, me there. Yes. It might actually be a place I could be terrified of. Great.
I get an eerie feeling just looking at pictures online, hah.
Well maybe one day.
