Impressive if you've seen the movie

This monument is dedicated to a loyal dog that waited for his master even after his master had passed away. See the movie if you haven't already.

I visited the statue on 6th of April. It's right outside the Hachiko Exit/Entrance of Shibuya JR station. (JR is a metro rail company. There are many metros in Japan). I was expecting a larger statue. However, this one is a life-size dog statue on an elevation. There is a train bogey right next to it as well. You can... More

The story of the dog who waited years for the master who never came home is heartbreaking. The statue makes you feel emotional.

Next to the Japanese Tourist info tram car. Most people seemed to take a 20 sec selfie and move on. Not a lot else to see here

Take time to visit the statue of Hachiko just near the Shibuya Scramble. Read the story behind this amazing animal, such a beautiful story. When you are there give Hachiko a pat for me.

I was so happy to find Hachiko. The story of Hachiko makes me cry. What a loyal dog. When I see old pictures of Hachiko waiting for his owner, breaks my heart. I am impressed how the Japanese honored this dog with a statue at the station he always waited for his owner.

My husband really wanted to see this and since this was the main station for our hotel it made it easy. If you know the story behind it then you should try to see it if here. If not it's just a statue surrounded by a bunch of people taking pictures with it. If you want a picture with it... More

The dogs paw gets touched by everyone who walks and stops by it. Touching. Someone's cat posed for a photo

This is easy to find as it's right next to the famous crossing. It doesn't warrant stopping but you can look as you pass by. It sits in a very busy area so it is always crowded around the area.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
