Aokigahara, a dense forest in
Japan, is the setting for a surprising number of cases of suicide
every year. Why Aokigahara? Some people think that it's due to the
high rate of suicide in Japan in general, others believe the forest
is host to miserable spirits that draw other unhappy people into
its depths. In this episode, we discuss Aokigahara and the history
of suicide in Japan.
