KOBE BEEF STICKS IN SHIBUYA - JAPAN

KOBE BEEF STICKS
SHIBUYA

Shibuya is one of my favorite areas of Tokyo to walk, eat and people watch.  This is one of the cities main hubs for shopping and entertainment plus a hangout for the young fashion oriented people of Japan and it should not be missed.  Every visit to Shibuya should include a visit to the Hachiko Dog Statue that greets you as you exit the subway station.  After paying our respects to Hachiko, we ventured down the many streets and alleys that make Shibuya one of my favorite places.  Enjoyed a few beef skewers during our walk through this exciting and vibrant area.

Hachiko, was an Akita dog that belonged to a professor at the University of Tokyo. Every day he would meet his master at Shibuya Station until one day in 1925 when the professor never returned. Unbeknownst to Hachiko, his master had suffered a fatal brain hemorrhage and would never come home again. But there Hachiko sat, day after day, waiting in vain for the return of his beloved master. The story of the dog that never gave up gained a lot of attention from local and national news, inspiring many people to visit Hachiko at Shibuya Station to offer treats. The story eventually spread throughout the world and a Hollywood film starring Richard Gere was even made based on Hachiko’s story.
