The Aokigahara forest, also known as the Suicide Forest, is located in the West of Japan at the base of Mount. Fuji.
It is widely assumed that the suicides began in this forest after the novel ‘Kuroi Jukai’ by Seicho Matsumoto was published in 1960, in which a pair of young lovers commits suicide in Aokigahara.
"To permit every lawless capitalist, every law-defying corporation, to take any action, no matter how iniquitous, in the effort to secure an improper profit and to build up privilege, would be ruinous to the Republic and would mark the abandonment of the effort to secure in the industrial world the spirit of democratic fair dealing."
—Teddy Roosevelt, Eighth State of the Union Address, 8 December 1908
