The forest holds a reputation of being home to yūrei, which according to Japanese mythology means ghosts of the dead. As per official records, around 105 bodies were discovered from the forest back in the year 2003 and most of them were severely decomposed or eaten by wild animals. Most of the Japanese spiritualists are of the belief that these suicides have permeated Aokigahara’s trees, which in return has given birth to paranormal activities.

1-Catacombs – Paris’ Underground Cemetery
In the 14th district of Paris are the Catacombs, also known as the underground ossuary where 6 million skeletons are stacked in an orderly fashion and date back several centuries ago. This was done because Paris cemeteries were running out of space while the city itself was expanding, thus it was agreed to move each cemetery’s collection of skeletons underground.
People like Charles 10, François the 1st , Napoleon III and his son all took a stroll through the long and ominous halls of the Catacombs to pay a visit. It really is a sight like no other, and is great to visit if you’ve already seen all the main tourist sites, or even a rainy afternoon to escape dreary weather.
