It 'a mainly composed of lava rocks forest, ice caves and dense vegetation.

In tutto il mondo, questa foresta è conosciuta come "La foresta dei suicidi". All over the world, this forest is known as "The forest of suicides". To the various entrances of the forest, there are several signs that invite people to reconsider their intentions to kill himself. Only in 2010 were found 54 bodies, but the forest is so wide and thick vegetation, it is assumed that the number of suicides is a hundred every year.

The record of bodies found was in 2003 with 105 bodies, but the government has stopped to make known the statistics in order not to damage the image of the forest and not to encourage the Japanese to go in this forest for suicide.

In the forest there are a couple of volunteers, who when they find people still living, often camped in tents, trying to make him change his mind.

Were produced several movies shot in this forest.
* Grave Halloween (2013) - A woman travels to Aokigahara with friends to find the body of his mother.
* The forest of dreams (2015) - A man the us went to the forest of Aokigahara to end their lives and meet a japanese with the same goal.
