      Very interesting place. I had a story published inspired by the Sea of Trees.

      there’s a longer, japanese documentary that’s better (i hear).

      hard to get in the us. i’ve only seen excerpts.

      this forest is very special to me.

      They just leave them. Which makes me want to die.

      Hey there, I thought I’d comment as I recently visited Aokigahara forest
      and spent 6 hours exploring it with two friends and three cameras. I
      compiled most of the video footage + photos along with bits and pieces
      from my journal to construct the story of my experience there. Please
      check it out and let me know what you think! (follow the link)
