Descrizione prodotto

With great joy, the two friends walked home together. This daily ritual continued for a year and a half until tragedy struck: The Professor died of a heart attack at work.

Of course there was no way to explain this to Hachi, who was waiting at the train station like always. Eventually Hachi went home, but he returned the next day, the day after that, and every day for ten long years until he died of old age at the train station.

Hachiko became a symbol of loyalty and devotion, and the people of Japan were so moved by his story, they erected a statue in his honor, which still stands at Shibuya Station today.

His story came back to me when I was taking care of Miss Truvy, a Bichon Frise who was owned by a friend of mine who asked me to do some dog-sitting for her. And so he began dropping Miss Truvy off at my house and before going off to work.

Miss Truvy, who was old and ill, slept all day, and could easily have been mistaken for a fluffy white throw pillow. But without fail, each evening at about quarter to six, she awoke and ran to the door. And sure enough, about ten minutes later, my friend arrived to take her home.

Though many books had been written about him and published in Japan, no such story had ever been published in English. Readers will be touched by the story of Hachiko and his impact on the people of Japan. Hachi is accustomed to waiting for his master at the train station when he is due home.
