The Aokigahara Jukai, 'the sea of trees', spreads across the northwest foot of Mt. Fuji, and is a forest growing atop the lava that flowed during the eruption of Mt. Fuji in 864 (the great eruption of the Jougan era), some 1,150 years ago. The Aokigahara Forest spans approximately 3,000 hectares but the soil has lain quite thin.
