The Aokigahara Forest also known as the “Sea of Trees” has the unfortunate distinction of being called a haunted forest. Ever since the novel ‘Kuroi Jukai’ by Seicho Matsumoto was published in 1960, in which the characters are focused on joint-suicide in the forest,
the popularity of the so-called suicide forest has increased among those determined to take their final walk. These events have inspired numerous horror movies centered
around the forest. However contrary to popular belief, the Aokigahara Forest is a beautiful dense porous lava based forest with hundreds of unique tree moles and ice caves. Unlike climbing to Mt. Fuji, Fuji Ice caves can be visited throughout the year.
