Aokigahara (青木ヶ原), kent as the Sea o Trees (樹海, Jukai) an aw, is a forest on the northwastren flank o Japan's Moont Fuji thrivin on 30 square kilometre (12 sq mi) o haurdened lava laid doun bi the last major eruption o Moont Fuji in 864 CE.[1] The wastren edge o Aokigahara, whaur thare are several caves filled wi ice, is a popular destination for tourists an schuil trips. Pairts o Aokigahara are verra dense, an the porous lava absorbs soond, helpin tae provide veesitors wi a sense o solitude.[2]

The forest haes a historical reputation as a hame tae "yūrei" or ghaists o the deid in Japanese meethologie. In recent years, Aokigahara haes acome internaitionally kent as ane o the warld's maist popular suicide steids, an signs at the heid o some trails urge suicidal veesitors tae think o thair faimilies an contact a suicide prevention association.
