People stand in line to take picture with Hachi-ko. If you don’t like standing in line the best time to go is in the early morning.

Nestled amongst one of the busiest intersections in the world, its a stark reminder of the loyalty that one animal had for his owner. Watch the movie and perhaps you will appreciate why a statue was made in the canines honour.

You should see the hachiko statue of going to be near shibuya. The story alone melts your heart and it’s a sweet reminder of loyalty.

What am I to write about this place for 100 characters? There is a dog statue. There is a crowd. OK.

We weren't set to have to be in the photo with the dog, so we just waited for the moment when it was in clear view. Some guy put two super cute kittens under the dog statue, it made a really cute photo opportunity. Always...More

Everyone starts to take photo with the dog. There's a queue and someone is there to help take the photo. A landmark for the station.

Lots of tourists wanting pictures with Hachiko right outside the Shibuya train station. It will only mean something to you if you’ve watched the movie so be sure to catch it first before you come to Tokyo. Get a box of tissue ready as well...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

When you arrive in Shibuya Station follow the signs to the Hachiko exit. There is a square with the Hachiko statue. This is also the location for the famed Shibuya crossing.
