Outside Tokyo’s busy Shibuya station is the bronze statue of a dog, the city’s most popular meeting place. It was erected in 1934 in memory of the faithful Hachi, the mischievous puppy of Tokyo University’s Professor Ueno. A strong bond grew between the two and Hachi would accompany his master to the station every morning, and be waiting patiently for him there on his return from work every evening. One day, however, the Professor does not show up, nor ever again. Despite this, for the next decade Hachi would every day, without fail, make his way to Shibuya station to wait for the return of his master, an act that deeply touched the people of Shibuya.

A heart-warming, true story of a dog’s devotion to his master.
