The statue of Hachiko, the famous dog born in Japan

This small Hachiko statue is the most popular meeting spot near Shibuya scramble crossing. Hachiko is the name of the actual dog in 1920s and famous for its loyalty to his owner. This Akita dog would go to Shibuya station everyday to wait for his owner coming back home from work. Even after the owner died, Hachiko still walked to Shibuya station everyday to wait his return for about 10 years. This statue was built to commemorate this loyal dog, Hachiko.
