If you know the story of the dog Hachiko then its definitely worth a visit. There's nothing much but just a statue of the dog Hachiko. But just across the road there's worlds busiest Star Bucks and eating places and restaurants in the Shibuya market. Enjoy japan. Ichi ni Santuri :)

Each time when I travel to Tokyo, I walk around the City of Shibuya. When you exit from the Shibuya JR Station ("Hachiko" Exit), look for the green bus (Shibuya Tourist Info Centre) and Hachiko is just nearby. During Christmas, the locals would help dress up Hachiko with Santa Clause's costume while tourists would queue up for taking pictures with... More

At this point everyone probably already know the sad story of Hachiko and his master. The ultimate symbol of loyalty which the Japanese value greatly. The shrine to Hachiko though is a great place to rest in between seeing all that Shibuya has to offer. It's also a good meeting point for groups as you ask any local and they... More

I go visit the Hachiko statue every time I'm in Japan. I love what he represents and that it's a popular place for locals.

The statue of a loyal dog which was waiting for its owner who had already passed away. The statue became a landmark of Shibuya. Located just beside the giant crossing, the statue is also the meeting point for people here. I happen to stay in apartment in Shibuya so getting here is practically easy.

It's a small monument right next to the shibuya station that you can't miss. I guess that the story behind this amazing dog makes this visit worthwhile.

It is very easy to miss Hachiko. He is located right by Shibuya crossing and the station. There are a lot of people wanting to take photos with Hachiko which I didn't fully understand, even though I love dogs. You can also easily mistake him for a very popular tourist attraction because there is always a large crowd by Hachiko.... More

You probably won't even be able to get up to ol' Hachiko without having to elbow your way to the top... but, you have to see it I guess. The story behind this amazing dog will make your eyes water!

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.
