Hachiko, Shibuya

(3.7/5 based on 2,200+ 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.

  • 來澀谷必造訪的景點,忠犬八公的故事不論是書本跟電影都令人相當感動,到達這邊一定不能錯到,拍個照到此一遊。附近還有很多商店、美食、藥妝店及電器街可以大肆採購一番。  more »
  • I mean, its simply a statue of the dog. Small, clean and nice to visit if you know the story about it. It just next to famous crossing.  more »
  • Historical site the is very crowded. The story behind the statue is a sad one. Don't expect to be able to just walk up and get a photo alone as the are people everywhere.  more »

  • 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
