Worth a quick stop if you're visiting Shibuya crossing. The story of Hachiko is so heartwarming and devastatingly beautiful.

I stopped here because it is a significant monument in Japan. There is nothing special about this dog except for what it stands for - loyalty and steadfastness which are prevalent to the Japanese people and culture.

A faithful dog's statue, located in the center of a square, surrounded by the crowded crossing of the city, and maybe the world. Charming, touchy, particularly if the remember the story of faithfulness, worth taking photos. Five minutes needed, the most convenient route - by metro.

Statue is located just beside the busy Shibuya crossing. It's crowded with people taking turns to have a photo taken with the famous statue of the famous dog.

This is a small bronze statue of the famous dog Hachiko. It's next to Shibuya metro station and a few meters away from the Shibuya Scramble. Worth to see only if you are in the area. Lots of people queueing for selfies.

Nothing much but a statue, but Hachiko and her tale of 10 years waiting is such an icon and has touched my people's heart including me so this is a must see!

I was expecting the statue to be simple as all in Japan is simple yet elegant. When we arrived at the statue outside exit 8 from the Shibuya station... the statue had a red sash which was nice. There were a few tourist taking pictures in fact we were the third group to take a photo and it was hassle... More

Any dog lover might have known about the beautiful and touching story of Hachikō, the loyal dog of Proferssor Hidesamuro Ueno in the 1920s. Be sure to get your camera ready as this is a popular attraction for both tourists and locals alike.

Had to pay our respects to Hachiko - what a beautiful story...after his master died he continued to go to the station for another decade until he died...lots of people lining up to have their picture taken with him. I loved the tile mural on the station wall too...

You can get the story from internet so I won't repeat it here. Be prepared to wait for the photos here as there are a lot of people here. Once you see an opening, just quickly step up to the statue or you would probably not get to take your photo. This also appears to be a meeting spot for... More

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.
