Hachiko, Shibuya

3.4
#15 of 859 in Sightseeing in Tokyo
Monument Landmark
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.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.

  • Of course you have seen the movie and of course you will pass by and take a picture. What is most interesting is the real story of Hachiko...  more »
  • Loyal and faithful, this statue dedicated to Hachiko a loyal companion and faithful dog was beautiful! A great thing to see if you are a dog lover!  more »
  • A lot of hype for a dog statue! Yes the story behind it is amazing and sad. But im not a big fan. Located just right across Shibuya crossing. It's okay but not really a must-see.  more »

  • The great Hachiko! You must visit this place if you are in Tokyo. It takes just a few minutes.
  • Near from shibuya cross, very popular and active place. It's fun to stay and observe people there.
  • Must view attraction in Tokyo. It's really crowded though. Tip: buy something at the Starbucks and then go to the second floor and just people watch for awhile!
  • Famous landmark of Tokyo which looks like times Square. Big screens everywhere always very crowded. You can see this place in almost every Hollywood movie when people are crossing the lights at night. A must see of Tokyo.
  • great place to go and absorb the atmosphere of Tokyo. For me, this is the essence of Tokyo and highly representative of the hustle and bustle of the city. This is also a great meeting point to meet friends and to strike up a chat with a stranger.
