The Most Popular Waiting Spot in Shibuya

Hachiko Statue Outside The JR Station
Something Special and Cute Joined Hachiko This Halloween

"If you ask your friends or family to meet in Shibuya, usually where will you ask them to meet you?

I bet 95% of people will answer you "Hachiko" in front of the JR Shibuya Station.

You may have heard about the Hachiko story from your friends or the Hollywood movie. Let us share with you one more time to recall your memory!

The story of Hachiko

Hachiko was an Akita dog and he was remembered for his remarkable loyalty to his owner Mr. Ueno, a university professor.  After his owner passed away, the dog kept walking to the station and waiting for his owner every day until the day he died. Everyone was touched by his loyalty and a statue was made specially for him and put in front of the Shibuya Station.

By the way, just across the JR Station, you can find Shibuya 109 Men's which is popular among guys in Japan! Inside this shopping mall, you can find a cool shop with the latest Japanese style and fashions - VANQUISH @ Shibuya 109 Men's!

Please check out our earlier sharing on VANQUISH here:

As we have mentioned, this Halloween, something very special and cute joined Hachiko to welcome you at Shibuya! So who is that??
