Went there on a sunny spring day. Nice walk, very quiet indeed. Follow the trail and you will be fine. It's obvious if you go off. Signage is ok, could be better (English for tourists)...... After a couple of hours, hit the ice and wind...More

So I came here because I have heard a lot about the "Suicide Forest". The weather was gloomy and the trees were very creepy, but I loved it. We hiked for several hours and it was spectacular. It's right at the base of Mt. Fuji...More

I had heard so much about this forest and had to see it myself. It's beautiful and a nice walk. My mom was easily able to walk it so it is not difficult at all. The birds were chirping and we did not run into...More

Twisting tree roots, twirling forest trails, emerald green moss accompanied by mushrooms growing on countless trunks, rocks and boulders. That is the sea of trees, Aokigahara. My friend and I went on a hike through the suicide forest on our way from the bat cave...More

Worth the trek out here to see this beautiful forest! The caves are also worth checking out... when they tell you to wear a hard hat... listen to them! The caves are soooo low that most of us were crouched all the way to the...More

This forest is rumoured to have an eerie atmosphere, but I did not find it to be so. It is peaceful and beautiful and extraordinary because it grows on volcanic ground.

The walk though the forest takes you completely away from civilization for a time. It is quiet, serene, and peaceful despite the notoriety of the place for it being a suicide hotspot. The trees and moss create a sea of green despite the lava field...More

If you are a fan of nature, this is your kind of place. The Forest itself is not that big, you can walk a 25 minute trail, visit some of the caves, and even contemplate nature. I visited with my kids (6 and 9), and...More
