Hachi: A Dog's Tale
Hachi: A Dog's Tale

Hachi is a movie that’s based on a true story of a professor who adopts a list Akita puppy that he finds at a train station. Due for release on DVD on March 9, 2010, check out our review of the film and watch an exclusive clip from this heartwarming tale.


The Tale

This heartwarming true story is an American adaptation of a Japanese tale about a loyal dog named Hachiko. This very special friend would accompany his master (played by Richard Gere) to the train station every day and return each afternoon to greet him after work. Sadly his master departs one day, passes away and never returns to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station the very next day, and every day for the next nine years to wait for his beloved master. During his daily visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the town square. He teaches the local people love, compassion and above all unyielding loyalty. Today, a bronze statue of Hachiko sits in his waiting spot outside the Shibuya station in Japan as a permanent reminder of his devotion and love.
