The famous dog of Shibuya/Japan. Definitely worth to visit as it is just outside of the station. You wont miss this place if you're in the area as many people can be seen snapping photos away.

Crowded, but it's Hachico and a must see. Can take a minute, but you'll want to take a selfie. Easy enough to find. Get off at Shibuya Station and follow the dog signs. Be sure to Google it's beautiful story of loyalty before you visit.

A must-see for Richard Gere fans. This place is very popular and consequently gets very crowded almost all,the time. There is no nearby parking so trains or walking are the best options. You can take selfies but please have your camera set-up before entering the...More

Hachiko set an example that dogs are Men's best friends. They are loyal to their masters and compassionate until the very end...having a dog relaxes one's minds...

The story behind the statue is so very heart warming but also very sad. The statue definitely portrays the loyal dog; however, it can get lost in the crowd.

If you’re searching for Hachikō, you’ve probably heard its story. The loyal dog who sat here waiting for its owner daily. Beautiful, sad story.. but if you’re looking for something more at this landmark, you probably will be disappointed. This “landmark” basically only has a...More

Sentimental must see, but VERY crowded. Really hard to get an unobstructed picture. Expected something more memorial.

Follow the sign "Hachiko" to exit from Shibuya subway station if you want to see this famous statue that remind me of loyalty from man's best friend. If you lucky enough, you can take picture without queue. If you familiar with Hachiko's story, you shouldn't...More

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.
