Hachiko would accompany his owner, Ueno, to the train station in Tokyo during the 1920’s and wait all day until Ueno returned. This was their routine every morning until 1925 when Ueno passed away while at his office.
Hachiko, being the loyal dog that he was, never left that spot and actually waited there for 10 years until he passed away in 1935. Rare photos of this loyal dog have finally surfaced as well as a statue in honor of Hachiko, which is outside the train station where he spent years waiting for his owner.
