Just north of Mt. Fuji is the Aokigahara Jukai Forest or “Sea of Trees,” a forest largely untouched by human activities such as logging. It is barely 1150 yeas old, and replaced an earlier landscape called the genshirin or “original forest,” patches of which are still preserved on the mountain.
The forest covers 30 square kilometers formed by lava flows from the Jogan Eruption of 864. They filled most of a vast, ancient lake known as the Senoumi, leaving only two isolated pockets that became Lake Saiko and Lake Shojiko. This event reshaped the geography of the entire region. Viewed from high up, the forest looks like the rolling sea and therefore is referred to as "Sea of Trees."
