Take A Photo with Hachiko Statue, Shibuya, Tokyo – Japan

Thetraveljunkie.org – We took the subway to Shibuya. Upon exiting Shibuya station, we came across the bronze statue of Hachiko, Shibuya, Tokyo.

This is a statue of a dog who always waited for his master to come home on the afternoon train (if you don’t know it, Richard Gere made the rather mawkish Hachiko: A Dog’s Tale in 2009).

One day, his master didn’t come home. Still, the dog waited at the same time every day for 9 years, until he died. His loyalty is commemorated every year on the 8th of april.

I’ve heard of Hachiko and his story really touches me forever. I just had to take a picture.

Stay tuned for my adventures in Tokyo.

A big thank you Japan National Tourism Organization, Garuda Indonesia, my readers, for following and supporting me on this journey!


Happy Sustainable Travels!
