10 Of The Scariest Dark Tourism Destinations In The World


Tourist attractions range in tastes and style, from museums, historical architecture, or perhaps even unique landmarks within a specific country. However, there is something called Dark Tourism where those interested can pay to get into a site where disturbing things have happened or the place appears quite macabre. This has sometimes been called Black Tourism, and is mostly associated with death or tragedy, including open graves in Chile to the suicide forest in Japan. There are hundreds, if not more, of these places across the world. Here are ten of those spots, which should be avoided

Suicide Forest, Japan

Officially known as Aokigahara, the Suicide Forest in Japan is a 14-square mile wooded area at the northwest base of Mount Fuji. Historically, demons are said to live within these woods, according to Japanese mythology. Unfortunately, the spot has become quite popular for suicides, with over 100 occurring every single year within the confines.

Oradour-sur-Glane, France

Found within the Limousin region of West-Central France, Oradour-sur-Glane is a small village that was the site of a horrifying massacre by the German Waffen-SS during World War 2. An SS Officer was held prisoner within the area, and as punishment, the military unit killed hundreds, including women and children.
