Do not know the history of Hachiko, the faithful dog? Hachiko was a dog known for his infinite fidelity and love to his owner, Eizaburo Ueno, a university professor. Every morning he accompanied his master to the Shibuya train station and in the afternoon he went back to meet him when he returned. True loyalty! One day, while teaching at the university, Ueno suffered a sudden heart attack that ended his life. However, Hachiko continued to wait for him in Shibuya. Day after day Hachiko went to the station and waited for hours for his owner, looking for his face among the thousands of strangers passing by. These days turned into months and months and eventually into years. Hachiko waited tirelessly for his owner for nine long years. Through rain, snow or sunshine. Hachiko died because of old age, in the same place where he had waited for his owner's return for nine years. The remains of the faithful dog were buried next to those of his owner in the cemetery of Aoyama in Tokyo.
