The faithful dog

A moving story lies behind the statue of the dog Hachiko in Shibuya. That of unquestioned loyalty for over 9 years...

The story of Hachiko tells us about the unique relationship between a dog and his master, Professor Ueno Eisabura. Since the birth of Hachiko in 1923, the Professor went to Shibuya Station every day, accompanied by his dog. Every evening Hachiko came back and waited patiently for his master to return.

But on May 21st, 1925, Ueno had a heart attack while at work, and did not return. Yet his four-legged friend continued his daily comings and goings between home and the station for nine years, until he too passed away.

Honored loyalty

Frequent travelers became accustomed to the presence of Hachiko at Shibuya Station, and the story of the faithful dog began to spread throughout the country.

To honor his unwavering loyalty, a first bronze statue in the image of the animal was erected in 1934 in front of the station. But after being melted down during the war, a second was installed in 1948. Hachiko has even been immortalized twice at the movies. In the Japanese film Hachiko Monogatari by Seijiro Koyama, then in the American movie Hachi by Lasse Hallström.

The stuffed body of the dog that moved the entire country, is preserved in the National Museum of Nature and Science in Tokyo.

Today, his statue is an iconic meeting point in Shibuya.
