It’s Hachikō. He came here everyday to the Shibuya Station, waiting for his owner to return. He waited for 9 whole years! Hachikō is remembered for his loyalty in Japanese culture.

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
