HACHI

The statue of Hachi is in front of Shibuya station. He was a japanese dog (Akita-inu) who waited for his master's return at the station, even after his master's death, for several years. The first statue was made while he waited for his master, but it was removed to be melted down in World War 2.
After the war, a new statue was built there.
