Aokigahara, or Suicide forest is an incredibly beautiful forest located near Mt. Fuji in Yamanashi. You can probably guess from the name that it's most famous for the amount of suicides that take place within the forest. The forest is eerily quiet as there is little to no sound due to the lack of fauna. The entire base of the forest is lava rock that twists and turns throughout the main path. This beautiful backdrop is juxtaposed to it's incredibly sad reputation, and I set out to capture a glimpse of those two things.
