➟ Last photo of Hachiko on display

Most will have heard the story of Hachiko, the loyal dog who showed up at Tokyo’s Shibuya station every day for years, waiting for his master who’d passed away at work. If not through a visit to the statue of him erected near the station — where the exit is named after it — then through the Richard Gere movie set in America that someone greenlit one night after more than a few drinks.

I’d never seen a photo of Hachiko before this one, taken after his death. I’m glad to hear he was fed during those years; for some reason I’d always assumed he lived as a mysterious stray, in keeping with the sadness of his story.
