Travel Japan Haiku - Hachiko Square, Sibuya, Tokyo - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Shibuya fashion centre
Hachiko shows loyalty
a more lasting attire

friendship memory picture
at our back
hachiko

my favourite to meet
best friend
hachiko square


admiring hachiko
a young girl and
her doggie

taking picture
in front of hachiko
a girl cuddling her pet dog

Hachiko is Japan's most famous dog which has been immortalised just outside Sibuya Station. The Statue of the dog, known to have waited at the Station for years for his master's return, has become a tourist attraction. The dog became famous after its strange behaviour was spotted by journalists and the story of his long wait for master's return from the War published throughout Japan. He never gi ves up. He is still waiting there. Shibuya is Japan's fashion centre.
