The statue is very small and with the amount of people around it, would be very easy to miss. Almost impossible to take a picture of the statue alone. Always has a bunch of people taking selfies, so good luck.

Hachiko statue at Shibuya station is just a statue, but mind you, your Japan trip is not complete without seeing this and having a photo taken. A lot of tourists in the place starting in the afternoon but really there is a happiness within seeing...More

Finally we got to see the famous dog. Hachiko is up there along with Lassie and Benji. We got there during night time so people are still gathering around. There's flower and notes posted nearby. It's a meetup place, so it's a given that the...More

This statue was very popular and there was a huge queue for people to have their photo taken we him. We just took a quick snap from the side but it was worth seeing.

The truth about Hachiko is that while the dog did in fact greet his master daily at the west entrance to Shibuya Station and continued to appear at that location for 8-10 years after his masters death there is a bit more to the story....More

As the true story goes, a Japanese Akita dog awaited its owner for many years at the Shibuya train station back in the 1930s, and even after the owner had suddenly died, Hachiko came loyally to wait for him for hours to no gain. Loyalty...More

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.

When you arrive in Shibuya Station follow the signs to the Hachiko exit. There is a square with the Hachiko statue. This is also the location for the famed Shibuya crossing.
