Hachikō known in Japanese as chūken Hachiko (faithful dog Hachiko) was an akita dog breed born on a farm near the city of Odate (Akita Prefecture, Japan), remembered for his loyalty to his master Eisaburō Ueno, a professor department of Agriculture, University of Tokyo, even several years after his death. In 1924, Eisaburō Ueno, a professor of agriculture at the University of Tokyo, Hachiko adopted as its mascot. Since then, every day Hachiko waited in the front door of Shibuya station to greet his master at the end of each day. This routine continued without interruption until May 1925, when Professor Ueno did not return, as usual, by train, as had previously suffered a cerebral hemorrhage while teaching at the University of Tokyo, and died. Because of this, never returned to the train station, where his loyal pet I expected. Hachikō demonstrated loyalty to its owner, and every day for the next ten years of his life, he waited in the usual place where he sat, directly opposite the station. As time passed, Hachikō began to draw the attention of friends and strangers at the station, many people who used to go frequently to the station had witnessed how every day Hachiko accompanied the professor Ueno before his death. It was these same people who cared and fed for that long period.
