“The perfect place to die.”

It was with sadness I read about this place, Aokigahara Forest in Japan and the above title is a quote from Wataru Tsurumui’s ‘The Complete Manual of Suicide’. The Dense Forest seems to be the choice for those who wish to end their lives.

78 bodies were found in 2002 and the signs around the forest do not appear to be a deterent. Signs such as “please reconsider” or “please consult the police before you decide to die” are nailed around the fences.

The forest attracts people looking at it’s natural beauty, the macabre who seek to search for the bodies and the suicide victims themselves. Local’s are apparently rather adept at telling which aim the person entering has.

It is considered to be a very haunted place, a purgatory for the Yurei, unsettled ghosts who have been torn unnaturally from their lives and howl their suffering on the winds. Some spiritualists say the trees themselves are malevolent and they try to keep people in with them.

Even in such a place the regular work must continue, the regular forestry work must be done. Unfortunately they will come across the bodies of victims in various states of decay, there is a special room set aside for these things.  In the room is a bed for the body and one for a spare person… it is thought that if the body is left along the Yurei will scream the whole night through.  So still think you have a crappy job?

As with some other videos I have posted I do this with a warning, this is an incredibly sad video and if you are not feeling up to it, I would advise you don’t watch it.
