Hachiko, Shibuya

3.4
#23 of 2,148 in Things to do in Tokyo
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. Plan to visit Hachiko during your Tokyo vacation using our convenient Tokyo road trip planner.

  • Clarity is the hachikō exit exit appears, is the statue of Hachiko is meeting people and other people have a picture without incident just before they pass through. Please look at the left, where instead of going to the intersection around the JR station and stands out better. You will see.

  • 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.

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.
