Let’s consider poisonous animals and plants, the threat of contracting incurable diseases, and become victims of gangs. What else can make tourists refuse to visit some forbidden places? An experience has shown that even a high probability of losing life isn’t able to stop some of the tourists on the way to the unexplored attractions. There are many beautiful and interesting places that are risky for a number of reasons. Sometimes, they are prohibited to visit. Those are not high security facilities, but places, in which an inexperienced person can become a victim of unfortunate circumstances and die. Whatever the arguments would be adduced by scientists and officials, there are still people willing to take a walk on the islands teeming with poisonous snakes, and abandoned buildings that are ready to collapse at any moment.

Some guests of the site decide to take their lives spontaneously. Last years, visits to Aokigahara Jukai were officially banned.

However, guided tours are conducted in the forest. Only the most quiet and unremarkable places are open to admission. Some parts of the forest are still visited by locals, who arrange picnics here. There is another dangerous feature, because of which even the locals don’t take a risk to go to the site. Aokigahara Jukai is one of the most famous magnetic anomalous zones in the world. One has only to step on the territory of the forest, and the compass turns into a completely useless instrument, so tourists are allowed to walk only when accompanied by a guide and only along specially laid trails.
