Hachikō Statue

Local name忠犬ハチ公像
LocationTokyo, Japan

This bronze statue is a tribute to the worldwide-known symbol of unwavering loyalty, dog Hachiko.

This brave pup was so devoted to his owner that every day, when his master, a Japanese professor called Ueno, would come home from work, Hachiko would be waiting for him at the train station. One day, the professor did not come anymore. He died at his work. Hachiko didn't know this, and thus the dog continued to come to the train station and wait for his master for the next several years. His story was also popularized by the 2009 movie Hachiko: A Dog's Story.

The statue was unveiled in 1934, when the dog was still alive. Located at the Shibuya metro station, it is dedicated to the loyal pup as a proof of the admiration the people of Japan have come to feel for him.
