- Perhaps the most famous meeting spot for people in Tokyo is this life-sized statue of a very loyal Akita dog in front of Shibuya Station. Hachiko used to walk with his master, Professor Ueno of the University of Tokyo, to the station each morning and home each evening. In May 1925, the professor died while at work; the dog patiently waited for his master that day, came back again the next day, and the next. For 10 years he waited for his master's return. Hachiko's stuffed body is now in the National Science Museum, Ueno.
