Hachiko the Faithful Dog
Famed for being a faithful dog, Hachiko waited every day at Shibuya station for his master—even nine years after his master's passing. When Hachiko too passed, he had the honor of being buried with his master where they could be together forever. If you are familiar with geocaching, a fun hide-and-seek type activity using GPS technology, there is a cache in his name at this cemetery. There is also a statue of him at Shibuya station, which has become a favorite meeting point right at the famous Shibuya crossing—a great place to experience the bustle of Tokyo. For the best view of this crossing and statue from above, catch one of the coveted seats on the second floor of Starbucks.
