Hachiko Statue

Hachiko welcoming guests

 The story of Hachiko has been told through countless films and books.  After being brought from Odate to Tokyo, he would wait for his master at the train station everday.  Even after his master passed away, he carried on his vigil for 10 years until his death.

    A statue was first erected in his honor outside Shibuya station in 1934 and another a few months later in Odate.  Unfortunately, those original statues were used melted down during WWII, but were recast in 1987.
 
    The statue which now greets visitors to OdateSstation depicts a younger Hachiko with perky ears.  Behind that statue is another which depicts Hachiko surrounded by Akita puppies.  Both statues are popular tourist destinations.
