If you're a dog lover (like us) you will love the story of this dog and his owner. A statue is erected in memory of the dog with lots of people wanted a picture.

Hachiko memorial statue is just feet from the Shibuya station's Hachiko exit. Difficult to take photo, many tourists from around the world gathered around the statue to have souvenir shots.

The Hachiko memorial statue is just feet from the Shibuya station's Hachiko exit. There are always people taking pictures of the statue. It is also at the famous scramble crossing, so you can see two attractions at once.

Tons of tourists from around the world gathered around the statue to have souvenir shots. Some memorabilia on display inside an old car train across the statue of the loyal dog.

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.

When you arrive in Shibuya Station follow the signs to the Hachiko exit. There is a square with the Hachiko statue. This is also the location for the famed Shibuya crossing.
