Hachiko meets his master for the first time in 90 years!

Hachiko meets his master

Do you know Hachiko? There is a statue of Hachiko at Shibuya Station.

He is a faithful Akita dog who waited for his master who passed away every day 10 years at Shibuya Station.

In 1935, Hachiko died without seeing his master.

However, Hachiko’s master Dr. Ueno’s University juniors reunited to build the statue of Hachiko meeting Dr. Ueno.

The statue was completed in 2015.

When I visited, there were several groups of people walking with their dogs .

They enjoyed seeing the dogs and the master having fun together.

Hachiko’s life


This is a Hachiko’s life.

Hachitaro was born at a private home in Odate, Akita prefecture the northern part of Japan.

He was sent by train to Dr. Ueno, a professor at University of Tokyo.

In the same year, he begins to pick up and drop off Dr. Ueno at Shibuya Station every day.

1925, May
Dr. Ueno dies suddenly in the university.

Hachiko, who went to pick him up that day, was unable to see Dr. Ueno.

Then Hachiko stayed in the storage room where Dr. Ueno’s last clothes are and did not eat anything for three days.

After that,Hachiko began to commute to Shibuya station every morning and evening.

An Akita dog researcher wrote an article about Hachiko in Asahi newspapers, it’s about an old dog who commuted to Shibuya Station every day for eight years.

Hachiko became known to the world.

A bronze statue of Hachiko, the faithful dog, is built in Shibuya.
