This statue is located near the station so it’s easy to access. Although it’s merely a statue, it has a heart-touching story about a loyal dog. It’s very crowded to take photo here in the afternoon. Many people sit at benches near the Hachiko Statue

This place is one of the tourist go to spots in Japan but sad to say, the mall beside it makes it look like its an ordinary ornament to the place instead of a shrine of the dog who remained loyal to his master because...More

I loved seeing the statue of this humble little dog. Saw the Richard Gere movie which was very heartwarming and moving, but nothing like the real story. The only challenge is that it is very crowded and hard to get a nice shot with just...More

Crowded on weekends but there was a Japanese man giving out origami to small kids and offering to take pictures which speeds up the waiting time. The cats under hatchiko makes it more special. There is also a tourism center nearby which is air-conditioned and...More

It is a cute sculpture! Usually, there are a lot of people trying to take a picture with Hachiko, so be ready to wait to get a chance to do it so. Maybe, knowing the story behind it will make it totally worth it. Good...More

If you’re a dog lover and know the story of Hachiko then it’s not hard to get to the statue outside Shibuya Station. Be prepared to line up for a photo with Hachiko, he’s very popular!

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.
