Any animal lovers would cry watching this movie. Not realising it, that this movie was released in June 2009 it only got to Malaysia in Oct 2010. (i’ve no idea why, probably it’s a low budget film)
The real Hachiko was born in Odate Japan in 1923. When his master, Dr. Eisaburo Ueno, a professor at Tokyo University died in May 1925, Hachi returned to the Shibuya train station the next day and for the next nine years to wait. Hachiko died in March 1934. Today, a bronze statue of Hachiko sits in his waiting spot outside the Shibuya railroad station.
Also was a remake from 1987 Japanese film, Hachikō Monogatari.
