Hachiko Statue University of Tokyo

Shunchan

Dec 8, 2016

In Shibuya, the statue of Hachiko has become a popular tourist spot. But did you know, there is another statue in Japan of this famous dog?

The story of Hachiko has touched many people around the world. It is about a dog, which faithfully waited every day for over a decade at the Shibuya train station for its master, who passed away. So sad! I really wish Hachiko could see his master one last time.

So I was glad that Hachiko reunited with his master in 2015. Another statue of Hachiko was built on campus of the University of Tokyo – this time, with his master by his side. Hachiko’s master, Professor Ueno, worked at the university before he passed on.

The statue has become a hidden sightseeing spot where many tourists visit. So should you!

あなたはもう一つのハチ公像をご存知ですか?

ハチ公は亡くなった飼い主の帰りを渋谷で約10年間待ち続けた犬で、渋谷にあるハチ公像は有名な観光スポットとなっています。結局飼い主に会えず生涯を閉じたハチですが、「飼い主に会わせてあげたい」という多くの人々の思いから、飼い主である上野教授が勤めていた東京大学に、2人が再会した像が2015年に建てられました。

隠れた観光スポットとなっており、このハチ公像を見るために東京大学を訪れる旅行者も増えています。
