Sea of Trees – Robert James RussellI am walking through Aokigahara Jukai forest, the light rapidly fading on a mid-winter afternoon, when I am stopped dead in my tracks by a blood-curdling scream. Inexplicably, I find myself moving toward the sound, searching for signs of life. Instead, I find death. The source of that scream remains a mystery as, across a clearing, I see what looks like a pile of clothes. In a small hollow, just below a tree, and curled up like a baby on a thick bed of dead leaves, lies a man, his thinning gray hair matted across his balding cranium. His pasty upper torso is shirtless, while his legs are covered only by black long johns — with blue-striped boxers sticking out above the waistband — and a pair of woolly socks. Under his bent legs a pair of slacks, a white shirt and a jacket have been spread out as a cushion at his final resting place.

Apr 12, AM. Keen to read the book one day if possible, but I think it might not be possible unless I learn Japanese! I agree, I think it'd be very dark, perhaps even too sad? I was surprised it wasn't listed, yeah - I wonder if it's not published anymore in Japan? Understandable perhaps. Just not in English it seems. I searched on google with Japanese a little, but I couldn't find any translations of Kuroi Jukai.
