One of Tokyo's more touching attractions, the statue of Hachiko depicts a dog that became world-famous for the incredible loyalty to his owner.

The bronze monument remains one of the city's top spots for photographs. Plan to visit Hachiko during your Tokyo vacation using our convenient Tokyo road trip planner.
