7. Aokigahara Suicide Forest
With one of the highest suicide rates in the world, of course Japan has the most popular suicide destination on its coordinates. The forest is so dense that some visitors use coloured ribbon to mark their trail through the labyrinth of trees.
6. Jigokudani Park
You thought an island overrun by cats was weird? These monkeys are living the good life, kicking back in natural hot springs… FOR FREE.
5. Zao Fox Village
Visit the cutest place on earth, Zao Fox Village, tucked away in the mountains of Miyagi Prefecture. Look at (but don’t touch) the smiling faces of wild foxes. You can buy food to feed them in the enclosed area for about ¥200.
