We took the wrong train and ended up in the UofT campus. We were glad we got here! Hachiko's solo bronze statue at the Shibuya Station is sort of lonely but his statue here in this campus with Dr. Ueno is full of happiness! It...More

For dog lovers and who knows Hatchiko from the movies, this is a must see. Finally, a statue featuring Hatchiko and his master Prof. Ueno are reunited.

We planned to go here since we loved the story and movie about Hachiko. We went here because this is new and not everyone else knows about this statue. There were no other tourists when we visited. It was an easy travel because the gate...More

A wonderful statue reminding us of love, friendship and patience. Google the story of "Hachiko" and you will view waiting for a friend in a brand new light.

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

Oops! I just assumed you were talking about the statue in Tokyo University. There is also one statue of Hachiko at Shibuya Station, which is across the street from the station.
