Scariest Places in the World: Suicide Forest in Japan

At the foot of Mount Fuji lies Aokigahara Jukai–better known in the West as Suicide Forest. It’s 13.5 square miles of dense forest, little wildlife, and decomposing bodies…a whole lot of them. Up to 100 are discovered there in any given year. It’s a dark and forbidden place (I know from firsthand experience!), and worthy to be on any list featuring the scariest places in the world. 

A sign at the entrance to the forest urges travelers suffering depression to turn back and seek help.
