Author: Rakuen Growlithe

Researchers at the University of Tokyo have come up with a new theory to explain the death of the famous dog, Hachikō (also known as chūken [‘faithful dog’] Hachikō).

Hachikō was an Akita Inu who was born in Japan in 1923. He became the pet of Professor Hidesaburō Ueno of the University of Tokyo. For around a year Hachikō would meet his master, at the end of the day, at Shibuya Station.
