The Mysterious Suicide Forest Of Japan. The suicide forest of Japan: Mount Fuji beauty spot where up to 100 bodies are found every year. The Aokigahara Forest is a lonely place to die. So dense is the vegetation at the foot of Japan's Mount Fuji, it is all too easy to disappear among the evergreens and never be seen again. Each year the authorities remove as many as 100 bodies found hanging at the country's suicide hotspot - but others can lie undiscovered for years.
