Quick and easy tourist spot and photo op when you get off the train in Shibuya. Yes, it's crowded, but you won't be there for more than 5 minutes.

Remember that movie where the dog waited for his master in the train station ,not leaving until it dies there? Well, that place exists and you'll probably want a picture of its statue. It's a nice place to hang out with the cold breeze..

there have been movies, you have heard the story, go see it, but if you want to meet someone, it is easier to pick the police box on the other side of the square

Hachiko is a legend in Tokyo, so much so that copy statues of this faithful are common (such as in Don Quixote). But this is the real deal, and a great photo opportunity. The statue is easily located outside Shibuya station, and definitely worth visiting...More

Although its a small statue but If you love the movie Hachi, you have to see this. I felt sooo emotional and touching after seeing it. If you haven’t watched the movie it probably won’t mean much to you but for those who have it’s...More

It was worth the visit just to have a photo with this famous dog. Even though there is a lineup to get a photo it will be worth it.

Close to the Shibuya station and the famous Shibuya Crossing. There will be lines for pictures. Cute story.

There’s a nice story about loyalty and love between humans and animals, but it is just that. The statue itself is not so big and the place is not a great spot... I mean, Shibiya is awesome, but the statue not a big deal...

I know i know its about a loyal dog. Just dont know how it became such a tourist attraction until people queue to have their picture taken with it.

This is conveniently located just outside the Shinjuku station. Look out for the exit signboard. After this can proceed to harujuku for other activities. Combination will take half a day or day. Towards the evening will be more interesting.

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.
