Shibuya Hachiko crossing

Shibuya crossing at night...

It's funny that I live in Japan since 2013 and I cross all the country from north to south many times taking landscapes or city pictures...


However, I realize that I don't have pictures of its famous crossroad and probably one of the most famous crossroads in the world.

It is reputed for its dog story...

Beginning of the 20 century a man was coming every morning to Shibuya station with his dog named Hachiko and go back home every evening with his dog too.


Unfortunately, a day this man after saying goodbye in the morning to Hachiko... had a health problem and died at work...


Since this day, Hachiko was coming every day to Shibuya station waiting in the hope to see his owner again...


A very nice true story...


If you come to Tokyo, don't forget to say hello to the Hachiko statue...
