3.7/5 based on 1,900+ 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.

  • I was one of egypt air cabin crew i was inflight manager i had been in many flight to japan i vizit hachiko many many times i love it and i love japan my first flight to tokyo was 1982 and last one was 2014
  • One of the tourist spots in Tokyo with the busy crossing, and shopping buildings around, and local eateries and bars and the hachiko dog statue landmark that has good backstory. Shopping, eating, drinking - good place to go to.
  • Unless you know the story of hachiko you wouldnt appreciate the statue. Either way its just a statue with little to no information about it. But still its popular its worth to check
  • It's wonderful to see honor for such a loyal animal! The area is super busy, but it's easy enough to get a shot of this legend!
  • Place for meets up. Most crowded cross junction in tokyo. Sometimes there is a live performace.
