a flaming monkey I've been to Aokigahara. Spooky place, truly. The fringes of the forest are dotted with these abandoned houses which are spooky enough themselves.
I was on the Lake Saiko side, which is very hilly, so I didn't venture far in. I did find an abandoned bicycle much like the one in part two of this documentary though.
tak_a_je_to Someone was telling me about this the other day, but they couldn't think of the name of the forest, glad I found this.
Also, I'm watching/reviewing this video as I avoid reading for a class on suicide in Japanese fiction. Weird.
