    As long as it wasn't a first date, I'd be into it (except for the McDonald's part).

    That forest is very creepy...
    And the volcanic rock is the reason for the many holes and caves in the area.
    I would like to visit it at least once.
    -its north of Mt. Fuji and from satellite, it looks like a solid green blob with almost no space between the tree tops. the closest place to a real "Lavender Town"-

    It could be very nice and beautiful but there is a feeling of apprehension and sadness that you can feel. You have to concider the fact that people went there or were made to go their. During famines or or when they were unwanted. Given the magnetic properties of the earth I'm not surprised the emotional energy is strong there.

    Great video! Well done. So much to think about. It's got interesting energy. A primeval forest. Hopefully tourists don't ruin it.

    Guys I'm going there to camp for a few days , I'll be posting updates fam.

    Day 1 . I walked a good 2 kilometers into the forest , seems quiet the air is full of a very delicate mist , the only sounds are birds and the ocasional creak of a branch , looks like I'll camp on this flat area surrounded by bushes.

    DAY 2 woke up relatively quick , distant eerie noises in
    the distance had me up through out the night . It's dawn and I honestly feel a sense of hopelessness and emptiness that I had never experienced before. Today I'm going On a hike , even deeper into the woods.
    Day 2 part two- it's getting dark and I seem to be lost , I've come to the conclusion that I won't be finding my camp site any time soon, better look for a dry safe place to spend the night.

    Day 3 . Woke up in a cold sweat , my backup batteries are running low , my phones about to die as I write this. I think I'm seeing things , I think I'm loosing my mind , Last night I slept 3 hours and I feel terrible. Don't know how much longer I can keep this up I need to get out of here.
    Day three part two - running low on water , seem to be going around in circles , I feel tired , feel exhausted . The light , I hear I see the light , I saw my mother yesterday walking along deeper into the trees , but she's been dead for 10 years, don't know why or how, I hear a voice it tells me to approach the light. I think I'll lie down here for a second.

    Day four . The light , it approaches but I need to make myself whole , I'll be made whole. But I need to get closer , ahh this rope this soft long sturdy rope , so beautiful , it has a purpose yes it will help me get closer. Aha I just need to tie it around that lovely tree , so majestic and peaceful , everything here is peace , and tranquility. What's that ? Yes I want to be a part of this magnificent realm, now to simply place it around my neck , like that mother ? ................ ..

    Great camera angles in this video - I love your perspective and the way that you have captured this with a camera. You have a great British accent - very charming. I hope you do more documentary films... you are really entertaining - and it feels as if I'm there with you. Great observations.

    man it does not cheer me up to hear Jesus loves me, when I'm down. don't want to hear that a non existent thing loves me. Nor do i want to hear people tell me they believe a non existent thing loves me. that makes me feel even more alienated, knowing that people are living outside reality. So Jesus loves me.... but you don't, no one else does? OK, thanks.

    The sad thing about this place is the stillness. People go there with their mind undecided if they want to commit suicide or not but the stillness and being alone really leaves the mind go wonder.

    I watched a documentary here on youtube. He was a person that finds the bodies I believe. But long story short he found someone in a yellow tent. He sat down and had a chat with him. When he first started talking to him he sounded really taken aback. He was really fragile. His mind mustve been wandering alone. I really do hope that the man had saved his life. (Vice suicide forest)I really like the guy in the documentary. Speaks with such carefulness. I hope you all go watch it
