There is a spotted dog named Hachiko in Japan. This dog was raised by his owner, Mr. Hidesaburō Ueno,
since he was a puppy. Every day, Hachiko would go to Shibuya train station to pick up his owner and then
bring Mr. Ueno back home. This habit continued for many years until Mr. Ueno suddenly passed away
while working at Tokyo University. Since then, Hachiko continued to go to Shibuya station waiting for
his owner to come back, but Mr. Ueno never returned.
However, what is surprising is that Hachiko never gave up. The dog continued to go to Shibuya station
every day for 9 years, 4 months, and 15 days after his owner’s passing. Hachiko became a symbol of
loyalty and affection between humans and animals. The local people took care of Hachiko until he
passed away in 1935.
The story of Hachiko has become a classic tale of a dog’s loyalty to its owner. It has also become
an evidence of the special interaction between humans and animals and the sincere care and
love between species.
