Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Imagine walking to the same place every day, to meet your best friend. Imagine watching hundreds of people pass by every morning and every afternoon. Imagine waiting, and waiting, and waiting. For ten years. This is what Hachiko did. Hachiko was a real dog who lived in Tokyo, a dog who faithfully waited for his owner at the Shibuya train station long after his owner could not come to meet him. He became famous for his loyalty and was adored by scores of people who passed through the station every day. This is Hachikos story through the eyes of Kentaro, a young boy whose life is changed forever by his friendship with this very special dog. Simply told, and illustrated with Yan Nascimbenes lush watercolors, the legend of Hachiko will touch your heart and inspire you as it has inspired thousands all over the world.

Synopsis:

This true story of a dog that faithfully waited for his owner at a Tokyo train station is now the basis for an upcoming feature film starring Richard Gere. Full color.
