Trivia:
Yukiyoshi Ozawa's English movie debut

'The Forest', is Jason Zada's feature debut

Natalie Dormer actually went to the suicide forest for research with her Japanese driver, she ventured five meters off the path to take photos and her Japanese driver wouldn't step half an inch over the path

The original forest has an association with demons in Japanese mythology, and is a common suicide site; a sign at the start of the main trail urges suicidal visitors to contact a suicide prevention association

Aokigahara, known as the Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees is a 35-square-kilometre forest lying at the north-west base of Mount Fuji in Japan
