Nothing much but a statue, but Hachiko and her tale of 10 years waiting is such an icon and has touched my people's heart including me so this is a must see!

I was expecting the statue to be simple as all in Japan is simple yet elegant. When we arrived at the statue outside exit 8 from the Shibuya station... the statue had a red sash which was nice. There were a few tourist taking pictures in fact we were the third group to take a photo and it was hassle... More

Had to pay our respects to Hachiko - what a beautiful story...after his master died he continued to go to the station for another decade until he died...lots of people lining up to have their picture taken with him. I loved the tile mural on the station wall too...

You can get the story from internet so I won't repeat it here. Be prepared to wait for the photos here as there are a lot of people here. Once you see an opening, just quickly step up to the statue or you would probably not get to take your photo. This also appears to be a meeting spot for... More

I first got to know about Hachiko when I saw his story in the 2009 Hollywood movie Hachi: A Dog's Tale, where Richard Gere played the character of Professor Hidesaburo Ueno. That piqued by interest so that I made it a point to go see the statue myself and I went past in on several occasions during my stay. People... More

A must visit when in the area. If you know the story then it's worth the trip to visit the statue. Plenty of young people use the statue as a meeting grounds so have fun trying to cut through the crowd.

Can't believe the crowds lining up for a photo with Hachiko you can expect to wait about 10 minutes for a photo, not sure if I could be bothered.

Those of us who know the story of the loyal Hachiko will definitely want to take a photo with his statute. Right smack outside shibuya station, it's very popular with the locals and tourists. It's also a meeting point for couples and friends.

If you read the story of this loyal dog or seen the heartwarming movie, this statue is a must see. Located near the busy Shibuya crossing you won't be disappointed!

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
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. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
