Destination Truth

704

Every week, Josh Gates, a world adventurer and eager truth-seeker, and his small crew of production buddies visit a different international destination alleged to be the home of a notorious, supernatural or mysterious creature, such as the Chilean Chupacabra, as well as some lesser-known phenomena, such as the dinosaur-like creatures reported in the skies over Papua New Guinea, a haunted village in Thailand and the wolfman of Argentina.

Japan: Mt. Fuji -- A crowded, dark forest bordering Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara is infamous throughout Japan as a popular spot for those taking their final journey. In 2002, 78 bodies were found within it. By May of 2006, at least 16 new suicides had already been found. No one knows how many bodies go undiscovered. Signs emblazoned with messages are nailed to trees throughout the forest. No sounds can be heard other than those produced by the forest itself. Aokigahara is considered the most haunted location in all of Japan. Spiritualists say that the trees themselves are filled with a malevolent energy, accumulated from centuries of suicides. The Philippines: Aswang -- An Aswang is a ghoulish creature in Filipino folklore. The Aswangs are the most feared of supernatural creatures on the Philippines and are the subject of a wide variety of myths and stories. One trademark or defining feature of Aswangs, which distinguishes them from other Filipino mythological creatures, is their tendency to replace live victims or stolen cadavers with a facsimile that it creates out of tree trunks and other plant materials. Aswangs are particularly feared for their appetite for children.
