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.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
