Hachiko Statue, Tokyo
The faithful dog Hachiko saw Professor Ueno off and greeted him at the end of the day at Shibuya Station in Tokyo. In 1925 Professor Ueno didn't return one evening as he had suffered a stroke at the university that day. Hachiko continued to come to the station every day for 10 years, waiting for her master to get off the train. When Hachiko finally died, a statue of this famous dog was erected in front of Shibuya Station and has become a popular meeting place for Tokyo residents.
