Things I want to see in Japan

I would like to see Tokyo and all the buildings and cars. And go for a walk in Cherry Blossom Park. And maybe see if I can make it through Suicide Forest, people committed suicide there, but police took action and put up a sign saying " Your life is a special thing that your mother gave to you." And stopped half of the suicide. And all the hikers that went in few made it out. Some say that the hikers that went in were going in circles. (Don`t know why I want to go in, but I take risks.)
