This is the meeting place for Tokyoites and tourists. Touching the snout of the devout dog Hachikō will bring you luck!
The statue of the famous dog of Shibuya, Hachikō (1923-1935), who became famous in Japan for his devotion, stands here. In the 1920s, he waited every day for his master when he returned from work. The latter died one day without being able to say goodbye to his dog. Hachiko waited for him every day in the square for ten years. At that time, Shibuya was a small suburb. Today, it's the meeting place for all Tokyo inhabitants and tourists passing through. Traditionally, people touch the animal's snout to wish each other good luck.
