This post includes the rarest picture of Hachiko. He waited for his owner, Ueno at the Shibuya station for ten years! Every day, Hachiko would walk his dad to the station and wait until he came back from work. This would go on for five years. One day, however, Ueno didn’t come back. Sadly, he passed away while he was at work. But poor Hachiko had no idea.

Hachiko kept on waiting. Not just for a day or a year, but for a whole ten years! He waited for his dad at the station until his last breath. The photo below shows Hachiko waiting for Ueno at the station. It was taken in 1934, a year before he died. Tears fill my eyes whenever I look at this photo.
