Reunited after 90 years!

Have you seen the famous dog statue in Shibuya?
Yes, the one called Hachiko.

Hachiko

This dog has become famous because of his loyalty.
For nine years, Hachiko went to the Shibuya Station and waited for his master to come home, not knowing that his master had died while he was away.

Nine years and never gave up!

Due to this anniversary, the University of Tokyo’s agriculture department has erected a bronze statue of Ueno and Hachiko on its campus.

So now they finally got reunited. Isn’t that sweet?
