    The Hachikō statue outside Shibuya Station, a dog who belonged to a Tokyo University professor in the 1920s. Every day, the professor would go to work, and every day Hachiko would meet his master at Shibuya Station to walk home with him. One day the professor suffered a cerebral hemorrhage at work and died, never meeting Hachikō at his usual time at the station...Hachikō attracted the attention of other commuters. Many of the people who frequented the Shibuya train station had seen Hachikō and Professor Ueno together each day. They brought Hachikō treats and food to nourish him during his wait. This continued for nine years with Hachikō appearing precisely when the train was due at the station...

    Hachiko

    Hachikō greeted his owner at the end of each day at the nearby Shibuya Station. One day his owner died and did not return.For the next nine years the dog waited at the station at precisely the time the train would arrive, waiting. This monument is to Hachiko.

    The story of Hachiko is very sad yet inspiring as well. Hachiko was found by Professor Ueno in Shibuya Station. Every day, Hachi would meet his owner at the station after work. One day, Professor Ueno had a hemorrhage and died, never to return to the station where Hachi waited. Hachiko waited for nine years at the station, and only stopped when he died. This story is about never forgetting someone you love. When I saw the movie, I teared up.

    Can't wait!

    Hachi, the Loyal Akita, waited 9 years for his master, Professor Ueno, who had died at work one day. Every day at the train station the loyal Hachiko waited...and waited...and waited. Hachi was so loyal to to the Professor, he has a statue at the exact place he waited, so in a way...Hachiko is still waiting...forever and ever still

    Jizo statues in Kamakura, Japan. Jizo take care of the souls of unborn children and those who died at a young age. Children “in limbo” in Japan are said to go to a place called sai no kawara, where they must create piles of stones into small towers. But every night the stone towers are destroyed by demons, so the next day the children must make new piles of stones. The making of these towers is to help their parents accrue merit for their own afterlife.

    Many people who frequented the Shibuya train station had seen Hachikō and Professor Ueno together each day. Initial reactions from the people, especially from those working at the station, were not necessarily friendly. However, after the first appearance of the article about him on October 4, 1932 in Asahi Shimbun, people started to bring Hachikō treats and food to nourish him during his wait. This continued for nine years with Hachikō appearing precisely when the train was due at the station.
