Hachiko - the famous meeting place in Shibuya

Hachiko is the famous dog who followed his master to Shibuya station everyday when he went to work, waited all day for him to return, then followed him home. One day, his master died. Hachiko still showed up everyday at the same time waiting for his master. Hachiko is buried next to his master, Professor Ueno at the Aoyama Cemetery. At Shibuya station, there are signs clearly labeled with Hachiko Exit, so it is easy to find. This is the meeting spot for friends to meet when in Shibuya.

Also, this is the location of the world's busiest intersection, Shibuya Crossing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXtOdSgf6Ic
It is absolutely amazing to see such a mass of people all going in different directions and as the light changes, the last stragglers rushing across the street before the cars and taxis start moving through again.
