Aokigahara is a dense forest that lies in the shadow of Mount Fuji, away from all the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. Known as the sea of trees, the serene beauty of this place has been overshadowed by the unfortunate reputation of being the suicide forest. Even though it has become a somber place in the last few years, it is still a popular hiking spot for adventure lovers and nature enthusiasts. So, when you want to be in the heart of nature, head off to Aokigahara Forest and soak in its natural beauty. But keep in mind that the forest is dense and high deposits of magnetic iron in the volcanic soil here make a compass useless in some parts. So, carry a map or go with a local to be safe.
