Hachiko, Shibuya

3.1
#31 of 4,789 in Things to do in Tokyo
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. Nine years after his master's death, the dog still waited for him in the same spot near a local train station, repeating the same routine day after day. 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.

  • We were looking for a dance academy that my daughter had to attend, and suddenly we saw a crowd and approached and saw the statue of Hachiko, before which photos were taken. Having seen the film in which this dog was so faithful and awaited his master that he never arrived, we were totally moved.
