Hachiko

A moving story about loyalty and resilience, Hachiko celebrates the remarkable joy an animal can bring to our lives.

Hachiko and his Master, Professor Ueno, had a daily routine: every morning the pair travelled to Shibuya train station and every evening Hachiko would wait on the platform to meet his master.

Then one day, the Professor did not return… but that didn’t stop faithful Hachiko! For the next nine years, he returned to the train station at the precise time the train was due waiting for his master to return.
