Ep. 1 - Aokigahara Forest, Japan - Sea of Trees
Sam dives deep into the folklore and history of the Aokigahara Forest, also known as the Sea of Trees in Japan. A lot is known about the “suicide forest” but very seldom do we hear the folklore which existed there prior to that legend and namesake. We take a look at the transformation of the tales surrounding this forest over the ages and why it later became known for what it’s in the news for today. Perhaps in doing so, we can shift the attention back to the rich cultural landscape it was known to be, and help this region heal from the uprising of media’s sensationalism over such tragic recent phenomenon.
