Hachiko, Shibuya
(3.7/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
One of Tokyo's more touching attractions, the statue of Hachiko depicts a dog that became world-famous for the incredible loyalty to his owner. Nine years after his master's death, the dog still waited for him in the same spot near a local train station, repeating the same routine day after day. The bronze monument remains one of the city's top spots for photographs. With our world travel planner, Tokyo attractions like Hachiko can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • It is the good breed for dog lovers, her story is extraordinary and true. The statue is not great but same model of piss in Brussels yet their fame is international to one another.

  • This is always full of tourists and travelers so I opted to go late at night just before the Shibuya Station closed for the night. I was able to take some photos privately because there are less people at night. Hachico is also a popular meeting spot in Shibuya. It's also very very near the famous Shibuya crossing scramble.
  • It's hard to really appreciate the loyal dog amidst crowds of tourists snapping and posing next to it. But then I went to the other Hachiko statue with the Professor, the one at the garden of the school where his master taught. If you're a dog lover, go have a pilgrimage there. It's so serene and beautiful. There, you can appreciate how wonderfully best friend a dog is.
  • Didn't actually go to watch a film, just went for a look. This is a really cool building with A Godzilla statue on the roof. The cinema sells lots of cool film merch. If you want a closer look at the Godzilla I suggest you go to the reception of the hotel above the cinema.
  • It's a cool statue. It's a good meeting point. It's ALWAYS extremely crowded. Watch out for spammers and cons trying to sell you stuff, or invite you to bars.
  • Worthed place to be visites. Its a landmark of shibuya and a legend dog
