SummaryAdd a Summary
Hachi is originally a true Japanese story. A dog named Hachi goes to the station which his owner takes a train every morning to go to work and meets him at the time he comes back from work at the station. Hachi was always with his owner on a way to station and home. However, one day, the owner suddenly died of heart attack during his work. While his family cry for his death, Hachi didn't understand why he didn't come back to the station from work. Hachi waited for him at the time he used to arrive at the station every day. When Hachi finally met his owner there, more than 10 years had passed. In fact, after Hachi's death, people built a statue of Hachi at the station, Shibuya in Japan for his royalty.
A great movie for the family...a man finds a loney dog in the train station and decides to raise him as part of the family...the dog is not only beautiful but very faithful...he waits for the owner everyday, at the train station, to return home, until one day, when he does not...extremley sad...
An owner of a dog named, Hachi who travels out of town each day, expects a visit at the train station from Hachi and goes with him to the train station every morning. So then the owner dies and the family who owns Hachi moves toa different town and Hachi still tries to go to the train station
