If you ever go to Japan then odds are you will hear about him. Hachiko is a national hero to the Japanese! A dog so famous there have been several movies made about him. Even Hollywood has made a movie about Hachiko! So why is the Hachiko story so famous you may wonder? Well, I am happy you asked because here I will give you the amazing, real and very sad story about Hachiko the dog. Eizaburo Ueno, professor in agriculture science at Tokyo University in Japan, had long wanted a purebred Japanese Akita dog. He had looked for the perfect Akita puppy for a long time, until one of this students encouraged him to adopt Hachiko, from the Odate city in the Akita prefecture of Japan.
Hachiko, or Hachi which became his nickname, and his new owner soon became best friends. Eizaburo loved his dear dog above all and treated him as his son. The two of them were inseparable. As Hachiko grew older, he started to see his owner off to work in the morning at the Shibuya Train Station, in central Tokyo and went to pick him up at the station in the afternoon when he returned from work. On May 21, , only two years after Hachiko was born, Hachiko was as usually sitting by the exit at Shibuya train station waiting for his dear Eizaburo.
But his owner never showed up….. It turned out that Eizaburo had suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage and died suddenly and unexpectedly while at work. Hachiko moved in with a former gardener of the Ueno family. But throughout the rest of his ten-year-long life, he kept going to the Shibuya Train Station every morning and afternoon precisely when the train was due to enter the station. A major Japanese newspaper reporter picked up the story of Hachiko in and published it, which led to Hachiko becoming a celebrity all over Japan.
The story of the dog that never gave up gained a lot of attention also in national media, inspiring many people from all over the world to visit Hachiko at Shibuya Train Station to offer him treats. He touched the hearts of the Japanese people and soon became their hero. In a statue of Hachiko was unveiled at a grand ceremony in front of Shibuya train station with Hachiko himself present as the main guest. Hachiko passed away peacefully and alone on the street near Shibuya train station on March 8, Today the Hachiko bronze statue is a popular attraction outside of Shibuya train station, especially among young Japanese.
There has actually been made two Hachiko bronze statues in Tokyo. The first one was removed during the World War II and melted as a source of metal.

Have you seen the film? Did you cry as much as me watching the film? If you liked this post and found it useful, please share on social media. Thank you! I doubt that one can find such loyalty in human being I always loved dog. Missouri has two dogs that are most famous. The first dog is Jim the Wonder dog, and the second is about a trial in the 19the century.
That trial is called The Old Drum Trial. Read the summation the lawyer gave to the dog. Jim the Wonder Dog is the most amazing story you quite likely will ever read. The dog was truly uncanny. I also cried like a big baby. What I keep asking myself though is why the wife did not keep the dog. She just left him on the street to die alone and let other people take care of this amazing dog. I did not like that part of this sad story.
I think the family could have done more for this beautiful faithful dog. But I understand we live in different cultures. I also saw that the dog did not want to stay with the daughter but I still think the family did not try hard enough, they gave up too easy. If this had happened in this country America that dog would have been adopted and nursed back to health in a heartbeat.
Thank you for the great article. Thank you for commenting! It is a really sad story and a heartbreaking movie. I cried a lot too. Hachiko seemed like a really nice and cute dog. Very nice article and photos. I have this movie in my DVR and cry every time I see it. I even cried when I read the article to my husband! My glasses are tear stained just from watching the clip from the movie! The movie is great and so emotional! I still cry every time I see it.
I agree, Hachi is the perfect example of the pure heart and love that dogs have towards humans and their owners. I know what you mean, and I thought so too. But then it occurred to me that Hatchi was so inconsolable that no other human, no matter how kind or loving, would penetrate the grieving he was going through. He likely simply tolerated the attention he received. He lived only to see his master once again…like both movies depicted so agonizingly—and beautifully— well in their last scenes.
Loyal Dog Dies of “Broken Heart”
What a powerful movie. I was once told that humans take a long, long time to learn how to love. But dogs are born that way and thus do not have the need to live as long as man. Hi Teri, I agree with you about the neglect of Hachiko after the passing of his beloved master. The wife, in particular, apparently did not allow Hachiko to live in their home on several occasions and insisted that Hachiko live in their garden shed despite the cold and darkness even as a young pup. The Hollywood movie in really upset me since I was not aware that Mr. Such a sad and tragic ending for Hachiko.
I wish his life had a happier ending. Thank you, Maria. Wow, I also have a birthday this month and will be I never knew about this movie or the story. I got up early this morning about 5am, and only caught the last half hour after the master had already died, and was intrequed and saddened by it. Lord willing I will be watching it. We lost our dog Rambo a couple of years ago, he died 10 years to the day he was born in. I am a huge animal lover, especially dogs.
The reason was because since her husband had passed away Hachi reminded her so much of her husband and did not want to keep the dog because it would constantly make her think of him. And it was clearly her that made Hachi sleep outside even during the winters. I watched the film today and cried it was truely amazing how devoted he was to his owner.
I wanted to know more thank you for this insight into the true story. A beautifully directed film about true love and devotion, I sobbed so much and found I could not retell the tale to others without crying every time. Dont miss this wonderful film. I saw this about 3am this morning and it is am and I am still choking up crying!
I never cried so hard or felt so sad. Wonderful dog!!!! This movie was so sweet and so sad. Great movie, and heart warming. I wonder how long it took Richard Gere and the Akita to bond enough to make that movie? The dog was obviously devoted to him. What do you think? I fell in love with Hachi-ko- However, I discovered though research there are six volumes about his life written by a railroad worker who was assigned to take care of him daily, they are in the railroad station masters office and no one is allowed to see them and they have not beer translated.
If anyone goes to Tokyo try to find out. Wow that dog Hachiko was the mostly sweetest dog I ever saw. He was the best friend to the owner. He was so beautiful dog and very spirit , he made my life so inspiring. He was very very smart pet, so faithfully dog. I cried when it happened about him waiting for his owner for almost 10 years. He now is in rainbow bridge now with God. I miss my wolfina so much she was15 years old now in rainbow bridge with all the animals with God.
I love all the animals that God created. I wonder if Hichiko was taken to see his deceased owner it might have helped him to understand he was gone. He so loved him. I will hold my Daisy nearer to my Heart because of Hachiko. No movie has ever moved me like this one.

To imagine a dog waiting 10 years for its owner is just heartwrenching. I think I learned about this in school! Also, I like how the Richard Gere version of the movie apparently just made everyone American. In this case it feels a bit strange, I agree, when it is in fact a true story that happened in Japan. But I guess they had to do it to get Americans to see it. I saw the The American version today I turned 65 today I do not think I have cried this much in along time my dogs are my best friends unconditional love.
I watched the movie with Richard Gere. I sobbed. I wanted to hug the dog. I definitely hugged my dog who waits at the front door whenever my husband goes anywhere. He knows the sound of his truck. I just saw the movie with Richard Gere. I cried so much at the end of the movie. I wondered who took care of him and where he was buried. Does anyone know. I have 2 dogs and love them to death and spoil them rotten. It warms my hearts and breaks my heart at the same time. I truly think this is one of the best stories about a man and his dog. Great movie, Richard Gere and a dog, how could it now be?
Thanks Lyn!! So happy to hear that you liked my article! Have seen it many times, and each time it makes me cry, hehe. This was the most beautiful story of a dogs pure simple uncomplicated love for their humans. Still crying! It is such an amazing and sweet story, but also very sad. As a big dog lover I must admit I also cried when I read about Hachiko. Yeah I cried so much watching both the Japanese and the American film. Every year on April 8 there is a memorial ceremony for Hachiko in Shibuya, by the statue. I have been there twice and its a beautiful ceremony with lots of flowers and speeches.
This year its going to be the 80th annual ceremony. Its 80 years ago since Hachiko died. Beautiful story of an amazing dog. Wow, I did not know about the annual memorial ceremony by the Hachiko statue. Sounds like a really nice ceremony! Would love to be there on the 80th annual ceremony. Love the story about Hachiko. I feel that the Japanese did not treat Hachiko well, for it would not have died out on the street. I watched the movie with Gere and loved it, cried and was angry at the family for not taking care of Hachi. Then I researched and found out it was a Japanese. The people at the station were not nice till Hachiko made headlines.
For all the fame they were getting from Hachi, they could have taken good care of him. I have gotten puppies and 2year old dogs and all of them wait for me at the front door to jump on me. Dogs feel real love as well reciprocate their unconditional love. I find it hypocritical for the Japanese since their good treatment of Hachico started in , 7 years after the professesor died. I cried so much for Hachiko, he needed to go to the burial and say goodbye.
Also take him to visit UENO gravesite. For me it is among the most engaging, emotionally moving stories ever told. It is a wonderful experience to be at the ceremony. There are a white cherry tree just next to the statue and it will hopefully be in full bloom that day. The ceremony sounds great Helena, especially with the white cherry tree in bloom. Wish I could be there too. Next month, we i. Wow, thanks for the information about this drive-it-yourself Hachi Trail.
We will definitely check it out on our next trip to USA, sounds great! Was moved and that is where I started to do all these researches in the internet and found this website! Anyway, it was great to see how people in Japan loves dog and above all, this undying love is what we all need! Thanks for commenting Russell! The Japanese truly love dogs and animals, which is fantastic to see. I loved this movie too, and that it is based on a true story makes it extra special.
After watching movie it made me research more on hachi and found ur website… Will come back yo read the story again…. I cried a lot while watching this film too Umesh. Thanks for commenting! I am 7 years old and saw the movie and I cried a lot! I wanted to learn more about hachi so read this. I love the Hachiko movie, and I cry a lot too every time I watch it. Hachiko is such a sweet and beautiful dog. Hello I love your stuff and how much you feel about the story. It is one of the best if not the best describing the story of Hichiko. By our Wiki I mean the UK one. Anyhow this site is really good and your stuff is well written and interesting.
Well done honey. I mean it keep up the great work. I have just finished my first book called a Tale of One City and I was offered a couple of publishers contracts appallingly bad one wanting money well 4 wanting money and one offering me a tiny percentage. Great to hear that you are about to launch your new website, exciting!
Wow, congrats on finishing your first book! That is awesome! I am planning to write a book too. It seems like a lot of work though so have to find some time to fully focus on it. It is so cool that you have started blogging! Everyone can blog, no matter what age. Good luck with all your projects! Although it seemed that Hachiko waited in vain for his owner, it was explained to me that this was not the case. The dog knew that his owner had passed and going to the train station was the closest thing he could do to be close to his owner and to remember his owner.
We used to have two Siberian Husky dogs, called Varga and Tiksi. When the old one Tiksi died, Varga kept looking for her best friend for a long time. I felt so sorry for her. I wonder why the family did not lead the dog to the cemetery where his owner was buried. Loyalty and committed love are qualities only a dog can show what it really means.
I have three dogs now who are my life. My mother was a dog lover and she and my father had dogs, strays and good breeds, from the first year of their marriage. She was a chronic asthmatic and contrary to what most people believe was a great comfort to her in her difficult moments. My father would be outstation on work quite often, but our dogs kept her company and sat at her feet — some even died of old age at her feet.
Their love for dogs has passed on to their children — today I have three of my own, and so also do my brothers and sisters. Thank you so much for commenting and sharing your story! Your mother seems like a wonderful person! Give your three dogs a big hug from me.
I love this story about hachiko …. I love it. A: Hachiko statue — Depot Square. B: Train tracks — Railroad Street. This rail line is known as the Slatersville Secondary. C: Stationary train cars under which Hachi sleeps — Railroad Street. The stationary train cars were on the siding that curves to the left. It is seen in the movie when Hachi first arrives at this location. E: Railway Bridge under which Hachi walks — corner of Blackstone and Arnold Street Hachi rests under this bridge, walks up to the fork in the tracks and takes the line that goes straight.
This is part of the Slatersville Secondary line. The line ends a few hundred feet behind you. F: Street where Hachi is shown walking — Arnold Street When Hachi is on his own, he is shown walking here on his way to the butcher shop. Thank you so much Sira for this detailed free do-it-yourself walking tour! Will definitely check it out if we go to Woonsocket.
Love walking tours like this that are movie inspired! But I love dogs. It is so true that the more you spend time with you dog the closer you bond. That was sad in itself, but knowing what Harchi was in his loyalty bringing him up from a pup would have been the best 2 years of the owners life. I personally hope some day to visit Japan and visit this site where Harchi waited. Keep up your great work … Cheers and Thanks. I was surprised too that Hachiko only had two years with his owner, and that he waited at the train station in Tokyo for his owner to return for eight years!
But I read somewhere that one year for us humans is like seven years for a dog, so then he got around fourteen years with his owner. I have had fifteen years with my dog from she was 5 weeks old and up until now being 15, and even that feels like too little! I loved Hachiko very much, it is such a heart warming story. Coincidence I think not, but my dog displays the royalty that Hachi displays as he waits at the door for my brother to come home at exactly pm.
Kaiser sounds like such a sweet and loving dog! I can totally get that you cried a lot in the end of the movie, I did too. I have had dogs all of my life and know how very loyal and loving they are Hachiko will always be in my heart. Nearly 5 to 6 times i have watched this movie and i cannot control my tears whenever i watch.
I have seen it twice, and I cried even more the second time. Yep, Hachi knows how to melt a heart. I really love the movie. I love your website. It is very awesome!!!! Unlike you I could not hold back my tears when watching Hachi the movie, I cried buckets. That time I have my companion Tibetan Mastiff — Rambo. Really heart melting story of a loyal and love. Thanks for such a beautiful article too.
Although they are fiction but a good movie for Dog Lovers. Thank you so much for tips about other good dog movies! Will definitely check them out as I love movies about dogs. I had watched it. Although its been a while since I watched, the film is still fresh in my mind… I remember how much tears I shed… not to mention puffy eyes and nose.
Even a dog can show such incredible act…. How about us? We are all blind by money and fame, we often forgot the most simple yet important values in life which we cannot value with money. Love, friendship, loyalty and faithfulness. May Hachiko forever take good rebirths without any sufferings. May the story of Hachiko always remind us to show humanity to all living creature. Thank you so much for your comment!
I totally agree — us humans can learn a lot from dogs. Dogs truly show their gratitude and love without any boundaries. Just watched the film and I have never sobbed so much! We have had several dogs, our last, Molly, looked after me like a nurse, I had a stroke and she knew when I needed a loving lick. Thankyou for your site, it was so nice to know the true story of Hachi. Awww, Molly sounds like the perfect dog! So sad to hear that she has passed away, and that you had a stroke. Hope you are better! It always fascinates me how dogs can detect what mood we are in.
They must have a sixth sense or something. Seeing that loyalty makes me want a Akita. I watched this film for the first time yesterday on TV. I had no idea it was a true story until the end, and I then looked at all the information about Hachi this unbelievably faithful dog. I loved the film yes it did make me cry a lot!! I cried a number of times!! If humans felt and shared love this deeply, what a wonderful world this would be. This movie is great!! I did not know it was a true story until the end of the movie.
Because it was such a heart-rending story, I wanted to find out more about Hachi and googled his name and found this web site. I was told to watch this film after sending my puppy to training, one of the owners said my cross puppy german shepherd had a bit of Akita in her and to watch the film. Wow, I thought it was amazing, very sad and I cried a lot. But Sky my puppy who is 7 months now is so intelligent and loving and come second in a competition against all the other pedigree puppies as she is so clever!! Love all animals and loved this thread!! Awwww, Sky sounds like such a great puppy!
Congrats on the second place in the competition! You must be so proud.
The Amazing And True Story Of Hachiko The Dog
Hatchi , ur one really great dog which i never see in my dog like u , i really crying on that movement when i saw movie. We all luv u hatchi , i want u back as it is…….. Really no words literally i cry buddy. Salute u. We had an akita growing up as a family pet so I can relate to this film. I must say it is an excellent portrayal of the independent yet devoted character of the akita. I was 7 when my mum bought him for me one Christmas and I was 20 when he died.
Awww, your Akita dog seems to have been really sweet and loyalty! You must miss her. I have never owned an Akita dog, but they seem to be very devoted and attached to their owners. My Siberian husky dog is 16, she still goes skiing with me. I love her so much. As old man like me, I am 58 years old of age, is not easy for me to cry, but infact I was crying during reading the story. I am touched with Hachiko faitfullness as long as 10 years to wait his owner comeback!

Also I cry Maybe because I remember that in the past my Family, we have also a Dog and she was very friendly to us, we love her verymuch. Thanks a lot! Your family dog seems to have been the perfect dog and best friend. I have good memories too of the dogs that have been a part of my life over the years. I was born into a dog-loving-family and have had dogs all my life. I know a dog can be owned and loved by more than one person. So that he mourned the rest of his life. There is no word to comment. I am writing this to mention my heartly thanks to author of this article.
Nothing more;I am praying to God get an amazing dog like hatchiko. We have a dog in my family. Have just watched this film this evening with my family. A man of 55, I found myself fighting back the tears being reminded of my own dog and his loyalty to me. I once heard dogs described as angels in disguise — from my experience they are that and so much more.
I think everyone is fighting back the tears when watching this movie, no matter what age. I sure did! Our dog Varga died last week, at 16 years of age, and it was just heartbreaking. I miss her a lot! It is the first time in my life without having a dog, and I can tell you, life is not as fun without a dog.
Ow Hauglann, I really love your website. I dont own a dog, but the story of Hachi made me realize that God has amazing ways in teaching us how to love unconditionally, unselfishly and faithfully. So attached to his owner, that Hachi should have died too on that same day, than living a life worse than death, waiting for someone who would never return. We are studying about Amazing Animals for our reading theme. It is fitting that since we live in Tokyo. Many of my students have been to the Shibuya eki and have seen this statue. He is loved by all my boys whom teach at St.
Thank you for sharing your article with us. Wow, so cool that you are studying and learning about amazing animals! Hachiko is one of the most amazing animals I have ever heard of. I got really touched by the story about Hachiko and his dedication once I heard it while visiting Tokyo. Thanks a lot for commenting! Good luck with you amazing animals project at St.
Really a cried a lot. This movie reminds me my pet pinky who is no more. It makes me feel like dogs are the most faithful towards their loved ones. He is been a best companion for the professor. I wanna make pet like this. Thanks for the article though. It explains the true story of hachi!!! So sorry to hear about your Pinky. Dogs and humans sure have a special bond, which the story of Hachi really proves.
I cried and thought a lot after reading the story and watching the Hachi movie, It really inspire me and my family how to treat dog. Now, I care more my dog at my home like my family.. I agree, Hanny, the story of Hachi makes us all care more for animals and dogs in particular. Hachi is such an inspiration! I wanted to know more about Hachiko and came across this blog post.
Very informative! I have three dogs and I shed a lot of tears watching the movie inspired by Hachiko. You should definitely visit Tokyo and Shibuya train station, it is a such special place when you know the story of Hachiko and have seen the movie. My name is Achi, I never like my name since young. I have a dog which I found him trying to cross the busy road few years ago.
He is born deformed, obviously he has been abandoned,I took him home with me, I love him so…so… much. My dream now is to visit Shibuya one day to a photo with Hachi. You have a beautiful name! Thank you so much for sharing your story of how you found and took care of an abandoned dog, it is such a sweet story! Your dog seems like the best. Hachi is a great name and a nice way of honoring the devotion of the original Hachi. I am considering naming my next dog Hachi too. So glad our article could be of help to you when writing your presentation about hachiko!
Good luck with your presentation! Just watched the movie about Hachiko with my husband. A very sweet story and both cried our eyes out. What a wonderful story…. I just watched the Hollywood version of the movie last night. It was so touching and reminded me of why I love dogs so much. They are the best. I wonder if that has been turned into a movie too. Thanks for the tip on the Korean Jindo. I have never heard of this breed but they look like really nice dogs too.
It seems like they are a bit similar to the Akita breed in their looks. Hachi demonstrated unconditional love and faithfulness. We humans needs to follow Hachi example. Great movie and true story. I watched the film last night and I have never cried so much. I have a small dog named chicken who was also abandoned and I gave her an extra hug last night before going to bed.
Saw the american movie and if it were fact, the dog would have been picked up by a dog catcher and put in the pound…and the daughter did the wrong thing by the dog letting it roam around…no vet care, would have had ticks and disease. Omg, what an ignorant comment…Do your research before speaking.. LOVE has to be a free gift. The moment there is a price tag on it, it is no longer love. Love is the most healing force in the world. Nothing goes more deeper than Love : it heals not only the body, not only the mind, but also the Soul.
I also would like to add that my maternal grandparents actually saw him at the Shibuya Station Thank you so much for that information! So cool that your grandparents actually met him at Shibuya station! A great story about a loyal, fathful dog. I watched the movie with Richard Gere and loved it and yes I cried but it reminded me of my Star. Star a black lab, born in and came to live with me in Belonged to my neighbor but always wanted to be with me. Given to me in May Past away in from cancer and I still talk to her every day.
I still put flowers on her grave at least once a month. Star sounds like the perfect dog and best friend, Ron. No wonder that you miss her a lot. I lost my dog earlier this year, so know how you feel. Dogs are the best! I watched the movie earlier today, then stumbled on your blog because I wanted to read more about this story — great tribute to Hachiko you have here! I saw this movie American version a few years ago in the USA and was touched very much by it, especially by the second half of the movie , but I must admit after a few weeks it fades away.
Now back in — my daughter has 1 year old puppy that I love very much too. Now I realise and feel even more the love of a dog for a human being and on the other hand how that puppy deserves our love as well. It was unbelieveble what Hachiko did! To morrow dec. A few years ago I actually was in Tokyo , unfortunately I did not know about the train station being situated in Tokyo.
I would have visited it, for sure. Thank you so much for commenting! I agree, having a dog makes you feel a great love for animals and dogs in particular. Great to hear that Hachiko the movie was shown on Dutch TV, love that movie!
Loyal Dog dies of Broken Heart
Too bad that you missed the Shibuya train station with the bronze statue of Hachiko, but then you have a reason to go back to Tokyo. Omg i cried my heart out watching the hachiko film. So sad. I only hope they have been reunited in heaven. God bless u hachiko. I have just watched the film Hachi — A Dogs Tale and was very upset being as it is a true story.
I hope to visit the statue one day. It is heart wrenching to witness the love and devotion between a dog and his master. I just watched the movie an it stole my heart , i cried! I did some research an read the story an seen some pictures an again it broke my heart. This story will always be with me, rest in peace faithfull one? Like all people who love dogs so much this story just shows how faithful and loyal a dog can be to the one they love. I watched him be born, he was my shadow and companion throughout his life.
We shared special moments together right up to the day he left me which still breaks my heart. Loved the movie………. They had to have bonded for that dog to be so devoted to him. I agree, Frank. But I am hopeless when it comes to dogs, I fall in love with all dogs I meet and want to keep them all.
I watched both the American and Japanese version. I remember when this movie came out…. I knew I was going to be in trouble and I was. I watched it and could not ever watch it again….. I cried so much. Dogs will always give us unconditional love…. There are spiritual forces that go beyond even that and Hachi was one of those. Sign up and get a free eBook!
