The forest also called the “Sea of Trees” and the “Suicide Forest” is located near Mount Fuji.

At the entrance of the forest, a sign states:
“Quietly think once more about your parents, siblings or children”,”Please don’t suffer alone, and first reach out.”

Countrywide, suicides totaled roughly 24,000 people in 2015 alone. These numbers do not include attempted suicides.

In 2010, the police recorded more than 200 people having had attempted suicide in the forest, of whom 54 completed the act.
