Aokigahara also known as the Sea of Trees, is a 35-square kilometer (14 sq.miles) forest that lies at the northwest base of Mount Fuji. The forest contains a number of rocky icy caverns, a few of which are popular tourist destinations.  Due to the wind-blocking density of the trees and an absence of wildlife, the forest is known for being eerily quiet, and has a historic association with demons in Japanese mythology and is a frequent place for suicides.

Space, which spreads endlessly.

“However, although people can only see the world of a mere few, they can dream of the distant world.  It will be another dimension which has no concept of time and the end of the spatial location. ..I progress into ‘Jukai’ so that it may be inhaled into the black hole of which even light cannot escape.”
