This has a famous story , which most would already be aware. In brief this dog daily visited the station to receive its owner . One day when the owner did not return, he kept coming at the same time daily for next 9 odd years

Very interesting Statue to see if you're in the Shibuya area. Unfortunately no plaques exist telling the story of Hachiko, nor are there any stores selling souvenirs in the area.

Is you seen the movie Hachiko, or familiar with the story about his famous dog, line up for a picture with dog. The monument is located outside of the Shibuya train station and directly in front of the worlds most busiest intersection. This area is great for people watching and shopping! A must see!

The story of Hachiko, the faithful dog is heart wrenching. This place has a statue in memory of the dog, is now a meeting point and lots of tourists flock in to take picture. Also not difficult to reach from Shibuya station. Helpful Japanese people will guide you in case you find it hard to find a way.

I knew of this place after watching the movie and i must admit the movie was really touching and it makes this statue so much more meaningful. If you are unaware of the story behind it, this is probably just an iconic place for meeting people, as its just right outside Shibuya station. Hard to miss, with loads of tourists... More

All dog lovers and those who have seen the movie Hachiko like myself would be surely very moved to see this memorial . One can imagine the love and affection from their public towards this loyal dog. It was one of the things on my bucket list which is now ticked off. Besides the Shibuya station is full of action... More

The statue is located just a few walks from Shibuya station. It's easy to find this Hachiko as there're many people coming there to take photos with him. Not a very special statue, but if you've watched the movie, you will know why he's famous :).

Hachiko is very famous. It was a faithful dog back in circa 1925-1935. I really advice you to read the story first before you visit this statue. The statue is located in one of Shibuya station's main exit. You may get confused finding the right exit when you alight the train. Take some time to examine the directions and the... 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.
