It a statue of a dog that died while waiting for his owner to come back. He never did. It reminds me of the episode in Futurerama with Fry and his dog waiting for him to return in front of the pizza parlor. I recommend...More

I watched the movie so I cried to see the statue of the dog ... if only humanity was this loyal. Linking the movie , Richard Gere to this location was priceless. This place should inspire all pet owners to have unconditional love for their...More

One of the tourist attractions in Tokyo. Hachiko statue is just right beside Shibuya Crossing and most tourists come in the afternoon.

It’s not big in terms of size but Hachikō’s status speaks volumes knowing his true and touching story. It’s also not difficult to find, for first timers, assuming you are arriving in Shibuya Station, there is a gate/exit named after him called the Hachiko Gate/exit,...More

Reminds me more of Thailand than Tokyo .. the main pedestrian strip is full of ice cream and crepe spots plus lots of tacky tourist shops selling cheap t shirts and so forth. There are some much nicer shops nearby, but just the big international...More

It is what it is: a statue of a dog. If you are in the area be sure to check it out, but if you are travelling to Shibuya solely to see this statue, it's not worth it. It's constantly surrounded by crowds of people,...More

For me, as an international tourist, this is not a single tourist 'attraction'. It's a beautiful story with a lot of meaning and I guess it's nice to see the statue to add that extra feeling. Luckily, it's right outside the station and right on...More

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.

When you arrive in Shibuya Station follow the signs to the Hachiko exit. There is a square with the Hachiko statue. This is also the location for the famed Shibuya crossing.
