Pet Friendly Hachiko Statue
Hachiko Statue In 1920’s Japan, Hachiko the Akita accompanied his best friend, Hidesaburo Ueno, to the Shibuya Train Station in central Tokyo every day. Hidesaburo would get on the train and go to work as a professor at Tokyo University and Hachiko would wander home, only to return at the same time every evening to walk home together. One such evening, the loyal Akita went to the train station as usual and waited patiently at his spot outside. Minutes turned into hours, but there was still no sign of his owner. Hidesaburo never arrived. Sadly, the professor had passed away earlier in the day and never caught the train home. Every morning and evening for the rest of his life, Hachiko returned to the station just in case his best friend ever came back. A decade later, he passed away peacefully outside Shibuya Train Station of old age, waiting until his final breath for his friend Hidesaburo to return. Hachiko’s story will live on forever as a statue outside the station, proving the bond between humans and their dogs can never be broken. See Details
