Hachiko was a loyal Akita hound who, in the 1920s in the city of Odate, would walk himself to the train station every evening and sit and wait for his owner to get off of his commuter train. After receiving a little treat or pat on the head, they would then walk home together.

One sad day though, Hachiko's owner, an agricultural scientist, suffered a sudden death at work. Perhaps confused, certainly grieving, Hachiko for a further nine years - until his own death - would continue to walk down to the train station every evening (Mon-Fri) and wait for his owner.

In doing so, Hachiko became something of a media sensation, and was revered around Japan as an example of loyalty to your family and friends, to which we can all aspire.

Around Japan, there is a number of statues of Hachiko sitting patiently at train stations, and now you can have your own small one!

Interestingly this Hachiko is sitting on a secret - a little fortune that can be pulled out from...underneath him. Delightful!
