There is a dog statue outside Shibuya Station, an iconic symbol of this area. Hachiko, an Akita dog belonging to a professor who lived near the station, waited for his master everyday in front of the station - for seven years after his death.

The owner of the dog was Professor Ueno, who was often accompanied to the station in the morning and always received at the station in the afternoon by his endearing dog. The professor died in his office in 1925, one year after he owned the dog. But Hachiko continued to wait for his master everyday until his own death 8 years later. This moving story was published in a newspaper and people decided erect a statue for him.
