The story became legend and a small statue was erected in the dog’s memory in front of Shibuya Station. The surrounding plaza is Tokyo’s most popular rendezvous point to visit as well.

We're very glad that we found out about this statue. It's not the famous one but it is a much better statue and shows both Hachiko and Professor Ueno. Very touching if you know the story. The statue is about twenty minutes walk from the...More

Glad we got the chance to see for real the statue of the famous loyal dog Hachiko. Nice to see where this loyal friend stayed and waited for his Master daily at Shibuya Station. Lots of visitors are visiting the place. Cool to see the...More

We took the wrong train and ended up in the UofT campus. We were glad we got here! Hachiko's solo bronze statue at the Shibuya Station is sort of lonely but his statue here in this campus with Dr. Ueno is full of happiness! It...More

For dog lovers and who knows Hatchiko from the movies, this is a must see. Finally, a statue featuring Hatchiko and his master Prof. Ueno are reunited.

We planned to go here since we loved the story and movie about Hachiko. We went here because this is new and not everyone else knows about this statue. There were no other tourists when we visited. It was an easy travel because the gate...More

A wonderful statue reminding us of love, friendship and patience. Google the story of "Hachiko" and you will view waiting for a friend in a brand new light.

Located at the University of Tokyo, Graduate School of Agriculture and Life Sciences, easily accessed from Todai-Mae Station (Nanboku Line). If you enjoyed the story of Hachiko, and his statue at Shibuya Station, come see the statue of the famous akita along with his master....More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

Oops! I just assumed you were talking about the statue in Tokyo University. There is also one statue of Hachiko at Shibuya Station, which is across the street from the station.
