Photographs of the famous Akita dog, Hachikō, that were recently discovered have touched people’s hearts all around the world and serve as a moving reminder of the strength of love and devotion. The tale of this extraordinary dog has crossed national boundaries to become a global representation of devotion that is independent of national boundaries.

Hachikō’s rise to prominence started in 1924 when he was adopted by esteemed scholar Professor Hidesaburō Ueno, who was connected to the agriculture department of Tokyo Imperial University. Born on a farm in Ōdate, Akita Prefecture, Japan, in 1923, Hachikō was taken to live with the professor in Shibuya, Tokyo.

Hachikō’s owner and him had a pleasant daily ritual that quickly became a beloved sight for many. Every day Hachikō went with Professor Ueno to Shibuya Station to wait for him to get back from work. On May 21, 1925, a fatal brain hemorrhage occurred during a lecture by Professor Ueno, leaving Hachikō waiting in vain at the station.

These recently discovered photos, which portray Hachikō’s melancholy times of waiting for his owner’s homecoming while being oblivious to the heartbreaking reality that would never materialize, beautifully reflect Hachikō’s unshakable commitment. The pictures provide as a powerful illustration of the enduring connection that exists between people and animals, emphasizing the significant influence that these relationships may have on our lives.
