Hachikō was a Akita dog, famous in Japanese culture for his loyalty to its owner.
The bronze statue of Hachiko was in a sitting position on top of a pedestal.
Its fierce loyalty and devotion was greatly respected and honoured by Japanese people.
He used to greet its master every day when he came home from the train of the Shibuya Station. One day its master died, and Hachikō spent the rest of its life waiting at the station.
In honour of its devotion, a statue was erected at the Shibuya Station.
