Japan’s abandoned theme park Gulliver’s Kingdom “…was located between Aokigarah and Kamikuishiki, two areas that have some of the most disturbing reputations in all of Japan. Aokigarah is better known to Westerners as “the suicide forest,” where around 100 people take their lives every year and annual searches are necessary to clear the area of all the corpses. Kamikuishiki was home to the Aum Shinriyko doomsday cult that was responsible for the 1995 Sarin gas attacks on the Tokyo subway that left 13 people dead. Aside from the ghastly reputation of Kamikuishiki, the village was plagued with the residual smell of the cult’s nerve gas factory  for up to five years after the factories were closed up–and the smell wafted all the way over to Gulliver’s Kingdom.” –Neatorama
