In 1924, Hidesaburo Ueno , a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo , took in Hachiko, a golden brown Akita , as a pet. During his owner's life, Hachiko greeted him at the end of each day at the nearby Shibuya Station . The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno did not return.
