Suicide Trees

by MSO

The Aokigahara Forest has been named one of the six creepiest places on Earth.

The Aokigahara forest is believed by many people to be a haunted. The forest has an eerie feeling to it, and is thought to be cursed as sits above underground iron deposits that cause compasses to fail. Authorities say that over 70 people commit suicide each year in the forest.

The popularity of this suicide destination was further enhanced after a popular Japanese novel Kuroi Jukai (Black Sea of Trees) used the forest as a place for two of its main characters to commit suicide.

Since the 1950s, more than 500 people have died in the forest, mostly suicides, with an average of approximately 30 a year.
