Hachiko: A Dog's Tale

Hachi waiting for his master

A movie based on a true story called Hachiko: A Dog's Tale touched the hearts of many and made it to True Story Tuesday. A man ( Hidesamuro Ueno) took an Akita to Tokyo in 1924 and named him Hachiko, Hachi for short. Every day the pup waited for  his master to come back from work. He crawled under the fence and at 4:00 sharp at the Shibuya Station. Hachi waited for Hidesamuro to get off of the train.

One day, Hachi -a not so small dog anymore- desperately tried to stop his master from going to work. Hidesamuro went anyway and Hachi did the same routine and arrived at 4:00. But Hachi wasn't greeted by his master, he didn't see him get off from work and he didn't stop waiting.

 Hidesamuro Ueno had a stroke and died while teaching. Hachi waiting for 10 years until he died in 1935. But his loyalty and spirit lingered on when a bronze statue of Hachiko was build in the Shibuya Station.
