Default Has anyone ever heard of Japan's Suicide Forest?

Probably the 2nd most popular suicide spot around the world, behind only the Yangtze River Bridge. Maybe even the first. They stopped reporting the numbers of suicides after over 100 people killed themselves in 2003. All the popular sites for suicides around the world are on bridges except for this one.

I saw it after that idiot Logan Paul posted his vlog about going into the Suicide Forest. He obviously didn't expect to find a dead body, and was there just to pretend to be freaked out by the haunting legacy of the area but the moment he came across a real dead body he should have just not posted the vlog or cut out the part with the man's hanging corpse. I mean he was obviously feigning horror at first but then gave no ****s and began to laugh and joke right next to the man's body. Instead he posted it, and was hammered with criticism until he deleted it. But obviously several people have since reuploaded it.

I first saw it on that Josh Gates show about trying to expose unexplained phenomena. I think it was called Destination Truth. There's some sort of force there that draws depressed people in. They made a movie about it as well.

Iíve always found it fascinating. Japanese culture already somewhat encourages suicide to those who dishonor their families. Add in a mystical forest that draws in depressed people like flies to a pitcher plant. Wow.

In Japan, in January 2009, after the global financial crisis, there were 2,645 suicides in that one month alone.
