Hachi: A Dog's Tale

Hachi: A Dog's Tale

  • A college professor bonds with an abandoned dog he takes into his home.
  • Commuting by train, music professor Parker Wilson finds an Akita puppy, whose cage broke unnoticed during shipping, leaving his destination unknown, and since the station can't care for it and the dog catcher warns even such cute ones may not be adopted in the two weeks allowed, he kindly takes it home. His bossy, jealous wife Cate initially makes Parker swear it won't stay, but by the time it's clear nobody will claim him and no adoption candidate is found, she agrees to keep the dog, who won over their daughter Andy and her fiance Michael at first sight. Parker's Japanese college friend Ken inspires naming the pup Hachi(ko), and is pleasantly surprised when Parker successfully tackles the challenge to get it to fetch, which Akitas don't usually do. Hachi makes a habit of waiting for his equally doting master at the station every evening, but after a cardiac crisis, Parker dies. Hachi refuses to accept this, being moved to Michael's home as Cate moves out, waiting for a master who can never come home again, by now collectively adopted by sympathizing town-folk. The story is told in flashbacks as class assignment 'my hero' by Michael's teen son Robbie, who also gets an Akita puppy. — KGF Vissers
  • A schoolboy reports on his hero: Hachiko, his grandfather's dog. In a flashback, a puppy at a Japanese monastery is crated and sent to the US. The crate's tag tears, and when the puppy pushes his way out of the crate at the train station of a small Rhode Island town, Parker Wilson, a professor of music in nearby Providence, takes the dog home for the night. His wife isn't happy about it, but after failing to find the owner, she lets the dog stay. A Japanese friend reads the dog's tag - "Hachiko" or "Eight," a lucky number. Parker can't teach the dog to fetch, but the friend explains that the dog will forge a different kind of loyalty. Tragedy tests that loyalty. — <[email protected]>
  • Eleven year old Robbie is giving an oral class report on the topic of "My Hero", his chosen subject, Hachi, who on the surface is an unusual choice. Several years earlier, Parker Wilson, who lives in Bedridge in suburban New York City, is a college music/performing arts professor, he who makes the train commute to/from the city every working day. It is on one of those routine days going home that he finds at the Bedridge Station a puppy, who he eventually will learn was being shipped somewhere unknown, with the shipping tag lost. He also learns from Ken, a Japanese professor friend, that the dog is a Japanese breed called an Akita, and that the Japanese character on the dog's collar tag is the number eight - "hachi". Parker does whatever he can to find out who the dog belongs to, and although his many acquaintances around the train station do their small part in helping Parker, no one is willing to take the dog, even temporarily. So Parker takes the dog home, despite he and his wife Cate long having dismissed the idea of having a dog. However Parker is able to convince her to let the dog stay temporarily. Eventually on the high probability that they will never find the dog's owner, Cate, upon seeing the interaction between the two, lets Parker permanently keep the dog, who he has since named Hachi. Although living in the Wilson home with Parker, Cate and their daughter Andy, Hachi becomes not a Wilson family pet, not Cate's, not Andy's, but Parker's alone as a special bond forms between the two. Although not a "typical" dog in that Hachi will do not what most dogs do such as fetch, Hachi demonstrates an unwavering and lifelong loyalty to Parker in an unusual way that all around him can see. Robbie chose Hachi as his hero because of this loyalty, despite he never having met Parker, who in nonetheless an important part of his life. — Huggo
  • Before the entire class, young Ronnie tells the story of his grandfather's exceptional Akita dog. As Ronnie starts to recount the chance encounter of his grandfather, the college music teacher, Parker Wilson, with the abandoned puppy that accidentally ended up in the professor's hometown of Rhode Island, an incredible story of loyalty and devotion begins to unfold. Indeed, at first, Parker intended to find the dog's owner; but, instead, after realising that nobody claims the dog, he decided to keep the abandoned puppy, naming it Hachiko. Then, tragedy struck, giving the perfect example of the strong, the unwavering, and sometimes, the unexplainable bond that can form between a man and an animal. — Nick Riganas
  • 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 to the train station every day and return each afternoon to greet him after work. Sadly his master goes to work one day, but dies at work and never returns to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station that evening, and every day until the last day of his life, to wait for his beloved master. During his daily visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the train station 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. (NOTE: There is also a bronze statue of Hachiko now at the location in Rhode Island where this movie was filmed. It can be viewed on Google Street Maps by visiting 1 High St., Woonsocket, RI 02895)

Hachiko: a dog’s story — film review.

Hachiko: Dog's Story -- Film Review

SEATTLE — Tear-jerkers about lovable dogs are almost always boxoffice winners as “Marley & Me” proved last year. Lasse Hallstrom’s “Hachiko: A Dog’s Story” might not match that film’s performance, but it seems certain to win an appreciative family audience. At the Seattle International Film Festival, where the film recently received its North American premiere, sounds of sniffling permeated the large auditorium. The movie is no masterpiece, but it delivers.

Stephen P. Lindsey’s screenplay is adapted from a Japanese film made 20 years ago, which itself was based on the well-known story from the 1930s about an Akita that came to the train station in Tokyo to wait for his master every day for 10 years after the man died. Lindsey changed the setting to Rhode Island and updated the story but retained the basic idea of a loyal Akita who achieves an almost-transcendental bond with his owner, a music professor played by Richard Gere.

Gere was one of the producers of the film, and it’s possible that his interest in Eastern philosophy gave him a strong connection to the story, which begins when he discovers an Akita puppy that has been abandoned at the train station where he commutes to work. He brings the dog home on a temporary basis, but it isn’t long before Hachi becomes a permanent member of his household. His wife, elegantly played by Joan Allen, objects at first to the dog’s presence but is quickly won over. Characterizations are fairly perfunctory, so it helps that Gere and Allen bring conviction and dignity to their portrayals. Hallstrom does a good job creating a sense of community. The townspeople all chip in to look after Hachi while he performs his daily ritual.

Those who know the legend will realize where the story is heading, but it plays out effectively because Hallstrom handles the tear-jerking moments discreetly. The score by Jan A.P. Kaczmarek, an Oscar winner for “Finding Neverland,” enhances the poignancy. The locale is skillfully rendered, and Hachi, played by three dogs as an adult and about 20 as a puppy, has definite star presence. The final moments of the film are absolutely devastating. Kids will love the movie, and their parents might be equally enchanted.

A Cure for Kids' Summer Reading Doldrums

Washington Post columnist John Kelly recommends this title for readers in first through third grades: Hachiko was a fixture in his Tokyo neighborhood, dutifully waiting every afternoon at Shibuya train station for his master to come home from work. Even after his master died at the office, Hachiko kept up his routine-for the next 11 years. Residents erected a statue of the loyal dog, a monument to love and devotion.

There is a statue of my old friend at the entrance to Shibuya Station. His bronze feet are bright and shiny, polished by thousands of friendly hands. There is a sign that says, simply, "Loyal dog Hachiko." I close my eyes and remember the day we met, so long ago.

When I was six years old, my family moved to a little house in Tokyo near the Shibuya train station. At first the trains frightened me. But after a while, I grew to enjoy their power and the furious noises they made. One day I begged Mama to take me to meet Papa as he came home on the afternoon train. She laughed and said, "Kentaro, you have become big and brave, just like a samurai!" Together we walked to the station.

It was spring, and the day was clear and cold. There were tiny carts all around the station, selling snacks, newspapers, and hundreds of other things to the crowds of people rushing by. Ladies in kimonos walked carefully, trying to keep their white tabi socks away from the grime of the streets. Businessmen strode about, hurrying home or to catch another train. Mama and I had stopped near the station entrance when I noticed the dog.

He was sitting quietly, all alone, by a newspaper stand. He had thick, cream-colored fur, small pointed ears, and a broad, bushy tail that curved up over his back. I wondered if the dog was a stray, but he was wearing a nice leather harness and looked healthy and strong. His brown eyes were fixed on the station entrance.

Just then, Papa appeared. He was chatting with an older man. The dog bounded over to the man, his entire body wiggling and quivering with delight. His eyes shone, and his mouth curled up into something that looked, to me, just like a smile.

"Ah, Kentaro! You see, Dr. Ueno, you are not the only one who has someone to welcome him," said Papa. He introduced us to the older man. "Dr. Ueno works with me at Tokyo Imperial University."

"What is your dog's name?" I asked timidly. The dog was beautiful, but his sharp face reminded me of a wolf's. I grabbed Mama's kimono and stepped behind her, just in case.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Hachi: A Dog's Tale is the story of great love and respect between a college professor and the puppy he rescues on a snowy night. It's a very gentle film that quickly engages the audience as it introduces a heroic dog, a man with a loving heart, and an idyllic setting. That engagement intensifies emotions, which later carry the story through the years to its bittersweet conclusion. The movie is based the story of a dog who lived in Japan in the 1930s; a statue of the real Hachi remains in the Shibuya train station there. Spoiler alert: A major character dies, which is heartbreaking and likely to upset most kids and parents. Though the film has a "G" rating, it's best for kids who are comfortable with very sad events -- including death -- and the grief that accompanies those events.

What's the story.

In the opening moments of HACHI: A DOG'S TALE, somewhere in a monastery in remote Japan a puppy dog is crated and shipped to the United States. But the Akita puppy's luggage tags are lost, and he ends up wandering the platform of the train station in Bedridge, Rhode Island. This is where music professor Parker Wilson ( Richard Gere , in a sincere and nuanced performance) finds Hachi, as the symbol on his collar identifies him. It's the beginning of a lifelong, unwavering bond. As loyal and devoted as Parker is, Hachi's commitment to Parker is as steadfast and beautiful. Parker's wife, Cate ( Joan Allen ) though reticent at first, begins her own relationship with Hachi, as does the Wilson's grown daughter. For both the women it's comfortable, but Hachi is a one-man dog; Parker is his soul mate. Everyone in Bedridge's small town center watches with amazement as the years pass and every day Hachi arrives in time to meet his master's returning train. Spoiler alert: When tragedy strikes the family, everyone is devastated, and those left behind struggle to endure their great loss. But it's Hachi that teaches the family and everyone in Bedridge the true meaning of allegiance.

Is It Any Good?

Like a Zen meditation, this movie has a calm pace that soothes viewers. That is, until tragedy occurs and Hachi's true colors shine through. The story of the real Hachi in 1930s Japan has been relocated by director Lasse Hallstrom to the United States in the 21st century. That keeps the story relatable for modern, English-speaking audiences. Long recognized for his ability to bring emotion and conviction to his films, Hallstrom truly captures this dog's-eye view of life. The leisurely pace and the gracefully portrayed passage of time and the dog's maturation combine with the beautiful settings and natural performances to make this a memorable film. However, be prepared to shed a tear and perhaps deal with younger audience members' sensibilities.

Talk to Your Kids About ...

Families can talk about whether Hachi is a hero or not. Can animals be heroes? Parker's grandson thinks of Hachi as a hero. Do you agree?

At one point Parker's daughter opens the gate to let Hachi decide to stay with her family or go off on his own. Given the circumstances, what else might she have done? Which of her alternatives was more loving? Which was more responsible? What would you do?

Do you agree with the MPAA "G" rating for this movie? What might the ratings board have taken into consideration before assigning that rating?

  • The stories featured in this lesson are based on the true story of an Akita-breed dog named Hachi, who greeted his owner, Professor Hidesaburō Ueno, at Shibuya Station or the gate of the University of Tokyo campus at the end of each workday. After the professor’s sudden death in 1925, Hachi continued to go to the station and wait for his owner each day until his own death in 1935. The story of this dog’s loyalty gained national fame in Japan after a former student of Professor Ueno published several newspaper articles about Hachi. In Hachi’s honor, Japanese people donated funds, and sculptor Teru Ando created a bronze statue of the dog. This statue was melted down during World War II, but in 1948 a new statue sculpted by Teru Ando’s son Takeshi was erected in its place. Today at Shibuya Station, the north-side exit and plaza are named the Hachikō exit and Hachikō Plaza. People use the Hachikō statue in the plaza as a landmark to meet friends. Also commemorating Hachikō are a mosaic wall-mural of Hachikō’s family and the Hachikō Memorial Museum housed in an old street car, which documents the story.

  • Why do we take good care of our pets?
  • Why are we so concerned when pets get lost?
  • How are we loyal to pets after they die?
  • What does a pet do to show it is loyal to its owner?
  • How is taking care of a pet important to the community?
  • Introduce whichever Hachikō book you are reading as a true story from Japan.
  • Develop background knowledge of commuter trains and public transportation in Japan. Help students understand that in Japan’s cities, millions of people ride trains every day from the neighborhoods where they live to the parts of the city where they work, go to school, shop, or take part in other activities; at the end of the day, they ride the train back home again. They walk or bike to a train station, where they can buy a ticket and wait on the platform for their train. Almost two and a half million people pass through Shibuya Station in Tokyo every day. You may want to show some of the images from the  Hachikō Photographs PowerPoint   at this time to give students a visual reference for what the trains, station, and platform look like.
  • Discuss the following vocabulary (depending on the knowledge and age of students):  platform ,  kimono ,  newsstand ,  vendor ,  rice balls  (called  onigiri  in Japanese, a rice ball is rice compressed into a ball or triangle around a filling such as a small piece of cooked salmon or pickled plum; rice balls are sometimes wrapped in seaweed; they are a popular food in lunch boxes or for snacks),  professor ,  leather harness ,  samurai ,  tabisocks  (traditional Japanese socks with the big toe split from the other toes for wearing with thonged footwear, such as the traditional Japanese  geta ),  station ,  bronze ,  university ,  stray . You may want to have students make a Vocabulary Book in which they draw or paste pictures that illustrate each of the terms listed.
  • Create a vocabulary list while reading the story or doing a picture walk. Revisit the list after reading the story.

Instruction: Read-aloud and Retell

Tell students they will be summarizing the story you read by drawing and writing. Give each student a piece of blank paper. Have the students fold the paper in half twice—first crosswise and then lengthwise—to create a mini-book.

  • Introduction to Kentaro, Hachikō, and the train station: Pages 1 through 5 (last sentence: “His brown eyes were fixed on the station entrance.”)
  • Introduction to Professor Ueno and Hachikō and Kentaro’s friendship: Page 6 through the end of the first paragraph on page 10 (last sentence: “”When it was cold, I would bury my face in the thick ruff of creamy fur around his neck.”)
  • Professor Ueno’s death and Hachikō’s loyalty: Second paragraph on page 10 (paragraph beginning “One day in May…”) through just before the last paragraph on page 18 (last sentence: “’Or perhaps he knows Dr. Ueno is dead, but he waits at the station to honor his master’s memory.’”)
  • Hachikō’s death and the Hachikō statue: Last paragraph on page 18 (sentence beginning, “As the years passed. . .”) to the end of the book.
After each section, have each student draw a picture and write a sentence summarizing that section. Tell students to use one new vocabulary word from the story on each page of their book.
  • After reading the story, show the  Hachikō Photographs PowerPoint  to help students understand that this really is a true story. Spend time discussing what made the station a special place to Hachikō and why the area around the statue of Hachikō is a special place to people today.


  • Tell students they will be summarizing each chapter of the story you read through drawing and writing.
  • Read  Hachiko Waits  aloud, chapter by chapter. After each chapter, have the students write and illustrate a summary paragraph. Tell students to use two new words from the story in each paragraph.

Guided Practice: Class Discussion

  • Where did Hachikō go during the day? What was special about this place?
  • What did Hachikō do that showed he was loyal?
  • Did he enjoy his routine?
  • Were any other characters in the story loyal?
  • What did characters in the story do to make their community a better place?
  • Tell the class that they are now going to create an illustration that represents Hachikō. Follow Molly Bang’s example in her book  Picture This,  demonstrating how a small red triangle might represent Little Red Riding Hood while a larger, rounded, light purple triangle could represent her mother.
  • Ask the class for ideas about the shape, color, and size that should represent Hachikō. As they give you ideas, students should justify their thoughts by connecting Hachikō’s actions and character traits with the shapes they propose using.
  • Ask students what type of shape they feel best represents loyalty. The students do not need to agree. Lead a discussion of how Hachikō showed that he was loyal. Encourage students to talk about why loyalty is an important character trait—how does loyalty help make a good community?
  • Give the students construction paper and scissors and have them make their own representations of Hachikō. Tell them they must be able to say why they are making Hachikō the shape, size, and color that they select.
  • Give students construction paper and scissors and have them make their own representations of Hachikō. Ask the students to write about why they are making Hachikō the shape, size, and color that they select.
  • Ask students to rewrite the story from Hachikō’s point of view, incorporating the idea of loyalty and how people or animals with loyalty contributed to the community in the story; they should also write about what Hachikō might have done before 3 pm each day.
  • Have students illustrate one event from their stories, using the construction-paper shapes they made and crayons or colored pencils for the background. Other characters can be represented with construction-paper shapes or can be drawn in crayon or pencil.
  • Assign students to use the mini-books they created in the  Instruction: Read-aloud and Retell   section above to retell the story to another individual and use their construction paper shape to describe Hachikō’s character. Use the  Retelling Hachikō’s Story Checklist  to assess student work or to have students self-assess.
  • Assign students to show their illustrations of Hachikō to the class or a small group, explain why they chose the shape they did, and read their story from Hachikō’s point of view. Use the  Retelling Hachikō’s Story Checklist  to assess student work or to have students self-assess.

Extensions and Cross-Curricular Ideas:

  • Visual Arts:  Assign students to make a mosaic related to the story, using geometrical cutouts as the mosaic “tiles.” Encourage students to convey their ideas about loyalty through their mosaic.
  • Character Education:  Compare and contrast the concept of loyalty in Japanese and American culture, using the story of Annie in Fort Collins, CO (or of another local hero dog in your area). Annie’s story is told in  Annie, The Railroad Dog  and, more briefly, on the Colorado Historical Society web site (see  Resources and References ).
  • Geography:  Discuss how the Hachikō statue now serves as a meeting place for family and friends in the area. Encourage students to discuss the physical features of the area around the statue (both natural and human-made), as well as the way people react to and use the space. Is there a place in your community with similar features? That people react to similarly?

Hachiko: A Dog’s Story

essay about film hachiko

Movies are being produced in their hundreds every year; therefore, there is a wide variety in the quality of those. There are movies which have wide appeal for both, the individual and the masses, thus, commanding great following while there are others, which are distasteful and colorless both, to the individual and to the critics. A good movie is one which makes the viewer want to watch it again and again.

Hachiko: A Dog’s Story is such example of a movie, which I would recommend to anyone. The film endeared itself to me by its eloquent depiction of loyalty, which I believe is rapidly being eroded in today’s society (Chrystyn, 2009). The film Hachiko is based on a remake of a Japanese movie and follows the same story line. The dog becomes a national symbol of loyalty. The film directed by Lasse Hallstrom and written by Stephen Lindsey, is a particularly good watch, especially (but not exclusively) to animal lovers and enthusiasts. The main cast is Hachiko (the dog), Richard Gere as Parker Wilson, and Joan Allen as Parker’s wife.

The story is woven around Hachi, the dog, who gets sent to the United States as a puppy by a Japanese monk. The relationship between Parker and Hachi is coincidental since Hachi, never having been intended for Parker, falls off the taxi baggage cart at the train station and is stranded. It is while Hachi is wandering around the train station that he gets noticed by Parker. While the writer weaves a nice story about the meeting of the two at the train station, he complicates the plot when Parker’s wife does not accept Hachi into the family. Eventually, Parker’s wife comes to change her attitude after seeing the great affection between her husband and the dog, and accepts the dog as a member of the family. The beauty of the relationship comes out when the dog learns to accompany Parker to the train station in the morning, and thereafter picks him up after work in the evening (Flory, 2011). The story undergoes a terrible twist of fate, when Parker suddenly suffers a heart attack and dies from it. Hachi, nevertheless, continues to go to the train station every evening in the hope of seeing his master home. He does not let up for ten years that suddenly makes his loyalty the subject of talk in the town.

Hachiko becomes the token of compassion and unswerving loyalty to all the people in the town. One of the most memorable events in the film is when Parker’s widow upon returning to the town goes to find Hachi at the train station. The sitting together of Hachi and Parker’s widow to await the next train is a very emotional moment, which can melt the hardest heart (Drazen, 2011). The end of the film comes in Hachiko making his way to the usual place upon which he usually waited for his master, whereby he lies down and never wakes up. Upon the death of Hachi, Parker is reintroduced into the movie, but as a ghost coming to reunite with his loyal friend Hachi, and they head out to heavenly bliss. Hachiko has left a legacy and has become the embodiment of loyalty and unwavering devotion. The movie offers a strong message of what is required of all humanity as demonstrated by a dog (Freedman & Yasumari, 2011). This is a movie which I would recommend to everyone not only because of its eloquent teaching on loyalty, devotion, and lifelong friendship, but also for its own sake in entertainment value.

Hachi: A Dog's Story

Reviewed by: Laura Busch CONTRIBUTOR

Copyright, Consolidated Pictures Group

Dogs in the Bible

Copyright, Consolidated Pictures Group

Marriage in the Bible

Copyright, Consolidated Pictures Group

“A true story of faith, devotion and undying love.”

“H achi: A Dog’s Story” is a heartwarming and inspiring family drama that tells the story of one dog’s unwavering loyalty and devotion. When college professor, Parker Wilson ( Richard Gere ), discovers a rather unlikely commuter wandering around the train station, he takes the adorable lost Akita puppy home with him. Parker and his new canine friend, Hachi ( Hachikō ), soon form a bond that cannot be broken. Hachi follows Parker to the train station every day and returns to the station every evening to greet his beloved master after work.

On one very sad day, Parker leaves for work and becomes deathly ill, never to return to the station again. Even after Parker passes away , Hachi faithfully returns to the station everyday for the next nine years, until his death, to wait for his beloved master. During those nine years, this amazing dog touches the lives of the vendors, the stationmaster, and the many commuters at the station square, as teaches them the true meaning of loyalty, devotion, and love. Hachi’s unyielding devotion and love for his master soon gains media attention, and this dog’s amazing story not only touches the lives of those at the station square, but all who learn about Hachi’s love and devotion.

Positive Content

“Hachi: A Dog’s Story” is one of the most refreshingly clean films that I have seen in a very long time. This is the kind of movie that families can watch together without worrying if it is going to suddenly become crude or profane.

This film reinforces the principles of devotion, love, selflessness, and faithfulness, and its positive portrayal of a loving family reveres marriage and traditional family values. These fruits of the spirit and this film’s respect for family and marriage are brought to life through many sweet and tender moments throughout the movie. We see Parker and Hachi share a bowl of popcorn, as they sit on the couch together, while watching a Yankees game. Parker also gets down on all fours to try to teach the puppy how to play fetch. Viewers will be touched as they watch the bond of friendship and loyalty strengthen between this cute puppy and his newfound master.

We, also, see a positive relationship between Parker and his wife Cate ( Joan Allen ) and their college-age daughter. Their daughter invites her boyfriend over to her parent’s house for a family barbecue. The relationship between Parker and Cate is a stable and loving marriage of 25 years, and their commitment to each other can be seen in many moments throughout the film.

This motion picture not only holds up from a moral standpoint, but it also holds its own from a cinematic perspective. Director, Lasse Hallström’s choice of musical score, soft piano music, enhances the film’s pathos beautifully, and his creative use of black and white shots shows the audience Hachi’s perspective of the world around him. Richard Gere’s interaction with the adorable Hachi is a joy to watch and will put a smile on your face. The chemistry between Richard Gere and Joan Allen , as husband and wife , is also touching, as they believably portray a happily married couple, whose love for one another is lasting.

The film begins with Parker’s grandson, Ronnie (Kevin DeCoste), explaining to his class that his hero is his grandfather and Hachi, because their inspirational story has taught him the true meaning of loyalty. This incredible story of loyalty has not only inspired Parker’s family and the locals at the train station, but as viewers watch the many scenes of Hachi’s unwavering devotion, as he waits outside of the station in heat and snow, day and night, all while bringing out the best in the locals, you and your family will be inspired by this touching story, too.

Objectionable Content

There is really nothing offensive in this film, but I will mention the few things that may be slightly bothersome to some viewers. Parker and his wife exchange a few kisses throughout the film. It should be noted that these are not overly passionate kisses, but rather tender kisses exchanged by a couple in a loving and happy marriage. Parker and Cate sip on a glass of champagne together (they do not get drunk). Later, they lie in bed next to each other, as they talk about their love and laugh with one another. (These moments are not at all sexual in nature; rather they serve to portray marriage in a positive light.)

There is one misuse of God’s name, and one of Parker’s fellow professors tells him that the Japanese symbol on the small tag that he found around Hachi’s neck, when he picked him up at the train station, represents the Japanese number 8 (hachi or hachiko). He tells Parker that the number 8 (hachi) is a number of good fortune and the spiritual significance of 8 in Japanese culture reaches up to heaven and comes down to Earth.

Summary and Recommendations

Overall, this film brings a breath of fresh air into the secular film world, where so-called “family films” are all too often littered with crude jokes and mild profanities, but “Hachi: A Dog’s Story” does not resort to these offensive staples of the modern “family friendly” film. I highly recommend this well-acted and moving film about a dog and his master to audiences of all ages, because this film is not only a delight to watch, but its tender lessons of loyalty, friendship, commitment, and love, as well as its positive portrayals of family and marriage leave audiences with some important ideals to discuss with their families.

Enlarge preview

In my opinion, Richard Gere is perfect for the role, as well as the animal actor – the dog. I think that the director transferred the story into the movie brilliantly. It’s a very touchable film, which makes viewers cry and evokes positive emotions from the very first minutes of the film. As it is a true story about the Japaneese dog it applies to our heart, and people who are sentimental will like film a lot.…

“Hachiko: A Dog Tale” is one of the most impressive dramas, which tells us about the faithfulness and love of the dog to his master. It’s a 2009 American drama based on the true story from Japan. It’s a remake of the 1987 movie “Hachi-ko”. It was directed by Lasse Hallstrom, written by Stephen P. Lindsey and stars Richard Gere, Joan Allen and Sarah Roemer.

Movie Review Hachinko

Hachiko: A Dog’s Story Lasse Hallstrom’s “Hachiko: A Dog’s Story” is a real life and a very rare story, which brought tears in my eyes and taught me about what faithfulness means. This film is a 2009 American drama based on the true story of the faithful Akita (breed from Japan) Hachiko. This film is a remake of the 1987 Japanese film Hachiko Mongatari. Lasse has directed many other international stories in Hollywood like Lumiere and Company “Lumiere et compagnie”-France, Casanova “Femur”-Philippines, and My Life as a Dog “Mitt liv som hund”-Sweden.

Lasse has done a great job directing Hachiko, he shows each and every element that the real story has and the Japanese version of the film. Lasse has made some changes in the film but one of the major change is the film is set in present-day New York America, rather than Showa Era Japan. Ronnie in the present day stands in front of his class to give an oral presentation about personal life heroes. In his presentation Ronnie tells about “Hachiko”, his grandfather’s dog.

Without paying upfront

Few years ago, an Akita puppy is sent from Japan to America, but his pet taxi falls of the baggage cart at an American train station, where he finds professor Parker Wilson (Richard Gere). Parker posts fliers and tells to the station controller but nobody replies. Cate (Joan Allen), Parkers wife doesn’t like dogs and so she insists of keeping the dog but after few days, the little puppy brings happiness in family. Parker tries to fetch, but Hachi refuses.

Parker’s coworker Ken (Cary-Hiruki Tagawa) tells how Hachi is a proud and royal dog, but he tells it will fetch only for a special reason. As Hachi grows and figures out how to go back and forth to the train station as Parker goes into work every day. Hachi for the next year, accompanies Parker to the train station, then at 4:55pm, he is there waiting for Parker. The hot dog vendor, the bookstore owner and all the other locals were amused by Hachi but Carl (Jason Alexander); the ticket booth conductor was not amused.

One day, Parker doesn’t return home and Hachi waits and waits for the next nine years. Richard Gere has played many roles throughout his career, but as Parker he played a wonderful and a loving husband, a responsible father and a dog owner in this film, which is unusual for him because he mostly played as lover boy in “Pretty Women” and as a husband in “Unfaithful” and many more but nothing like this.

Essay of film (hachiko).

The people can’t living alone. As a human social, people always need others in their life. We can consider to anyone as our friend. Many of people choose another things beside human, such as dogs, cats, rabbits, or others as their bestfriend. Which always accompanying them when they are playing, joking, and any activities together. Many people prefers choose animals as their bestfriend, it causes they disposed has a solidarity to its boss.

In this film which adapted from the true story in a region at Asia a years ago,, can be seen that there is a deeply love from a dog, the name is Hachiko, to a man who found him at a railway station, and take care of him with full affection. Everyday Hachiko accompanying his boss to the railway station when go to work, he waiting him until come back, and go back home together with the boss. Then, at one time, the boss who going to work doesn’t come back, he died at the work place. Hachiko which still waiting in front of the railway station, just staying down and keep looking to the gate, hopely the boss is shown from there. Although in fact he doesn’t see the boss in the first day, he still waiting there for the second, third, and furthermore. He still hold out at the place and on the same position, even if the weather has been changed. Then, he dies ‘cause getting cold after two years stay in waiting.

From that explanation, many things that can be learned, and we take it as a lesson for our life. One of that is the faithful of bestfriend which unpointed, seems like a dog who accompanying the boss to go and come back from work. The sacrifice of the bestfriend which without weary, seems like a dog who keep waiting for the boss, even if he must be cold, be heat, and be rained, he does it just for the boss.

My favorite restaurant essay ,The places we prefer vary according to our taste, culture and mood, along with our experience and our first impression of the place. Today I will talk about my favorite restaurant that I went to one day and leave me feeling calm and happy as well as the quality of the food and its tasty taste.

My favorite restaurant essay

Places we prefer vary depending on our taste, culture, mood, previous experience and our first impression of the place.

Today, I will talk about my favorite restaurant that I visited one day and left an impression of calm and quietness as well as the quality of the food and it’s tasty taste.

Italian cuisine is one of the most famous kitchens around the world and is one of the most luxurious and characteristic cuisines in the world. It is the origin of pasta and pizza that is unparalleled anywhere else.

The Italian restaurant is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding and magnificent food establishments in my city. Characterized by the quiet atmosphere, its light-colored interior and its elegant, glamorous decor, it was once a cafe before turning into a restaurant with many qualities of the former.

The restaurant offers delicious dining options, with Italian authentic flavor. Waiters in the restaurant are friendly and respectful.

This place is no less than a typical example of how to build a restaurant.

The restaurant serves many famous Italian meals.

The chicken soup with cream is a great start to any meal, and I have not found a restaurant serving it as here. I prefer the Chicken Caesar Salad after it.

My favorite dishes are the fettuccine Alfredo pasta with chicken, grilled chicken with cream and mushroom sauce. I love pizza of all kinds. They are all delicious and different options. Parmesan cheese is a good choice to accompany any Italian dish.

Canoloni Agnolotti with garlic and rosemary is one of the best Italian dishes. Agnolotti is a stuffed pasta and is very similar to ravioli, served with some rosemary and garlic. This dish is one of the distinctive foods in Italian cuisine.

Rap Arancini broccoli with marinara sauce is one of the best Italian dishes. It is rice balls with well fried broccoli and characterized by its golden color and served with marinara sauce.

The restaurant also offers different types of juices with meals. Such as lemon juice with mint mixed with crushed ice is an effective recipe for extinguishing the heat of the atmosphere.

The restaurant at the weekend is busy … my advice is to arrive early or book or call for booking to ensure a place.

The restaurant is rated 4 stars and its prices are high.

my favorite restaurant

My favorite restaurant for sure is one that specializes in chicken meals. The name of my favorite restaurant is “…?…”. It contains in the menu many recipes of chicken. I would prefer to order the Portuguese style chicken. So it contains a lot of hot spices. I prefer to choose the shape of the chicken and how to present it, whether it is with bones or boneless. Like a chicken burger or grilled chicken. Or other delicious recipes that I find very nice. I love to serve salads and appetizers first. Then serve the main meal in addition to some of the side dishes that I can add to the meal. All this is very nice to me.

my favourite restaurant essay

My favorite restaurant is an Italian restaurant called “…?…”. The best meal it serves is delicious and wonderful pizza. I like the way they prepare this pizza more than many other restaurants. I find it a nice way they cut the ingredients, I always find it thin and it is always fresh and of excellent quality.

The degree of cooking is great, always moderate and not too much. So I love it so much and I love eating it in this place so much. I can’t get rid of the wonderful smell that I can smell while it’s still on its way to me.

I certainly have that childish expression on my face because I long to take a piece of it and leave it a little in my mouth. I can never hide this expression no matter who I take with me to my favorite restaurant.

Of course, what makes me more determined for this restaurant is the experiences of others around me, friends and family, all of whom praise the wonderful taste of this restaurant.

I feel like I’m going there very soon, because this talk made me want to eat some pizza. I might go today, I don’t know if I could, but if I did, it would be very nice.

I also hope that everyone will be fortunate to find a favorite restaurant that he would like to return to with great anticipation.

restaurant essay

My favorite restaurant is very simple, I can not say that it is one of those large and famous restaurants that contain several stars, led by a skilled team of highly-acclaimed chefs.

My favorite restaurant is one of those small restaurants that the owner and one of his sons strive to manage and satisfy customers. Those restaurants you can find on the corner of the street.

They don’t have much food on the main menu but they do have a feeling of love and affection. I always order different food to try the items they have and they all feel the same as the food my mum made for me.

I like very much to order and eat meals that are served in famous restaurants, such as burgers, KFC pieces. Certainly not the same quality. But it makes me very happy. It’s great to see what it looks like in other places and get the closest taste to it. With a simple soft drink.

That’s all I can say in an essay about a restaurant in which I can express my experience. I wish in the future to finish my studies and be able to travel to broaden my horizons of thought. Visit famous restaurants and eat different meals. Until then, this simple restaurant will remain my favorite.

paragraph about restaurant

I like that the restaurant in which I eat my food contains Mexican or Indian recipes that contain sharp spices, especially chicken. I like to have the ability to choose in the size provided, such as a quarter to a whole chicken. Where I ask only for what is sufficient for me and there is nothing left. I also prefer that it be served with the meal, French fries and a large glass of soft water, such as Coca-Cola. I find such restaurants serving these meals very wonderful to me.

my favorite restaurant essay

It’s great that I can talk about my favorite restaurant. I like very much restaurants that have modern  menu on the food, the drinks and the dessert .

I am very attracted by those that are served as pumpkin sauce with cream. Or offer arugula juice. Things like this make me happy.

Eating in the restaurant is one of the good things. Since childhood, we did not encourage eating in restaurants a lot due to the loss of beneficial nutrients. The orders are always saturated with oils and fats.

But because of the change and the experience of some new varieties, I became a lot more encouraged to eat in restaurants. One of my most favorite restaurants is the tomato Indian restaurant. They can always surprise me and offer one of those new meals or offer a modern sauce that I like.

my favorite restaurant short essay

My favorite restaurant is near my house. The name of the restaurant is “………” This is definitely my favorite restaurant because the price is very cheap. I can for as little as “Put the price of the meal here ‘ I can eat a whole bowl of pasta.

But what is really special about this restaurant is that I can get an additional amount of the same size and the same price if I want more . So, I like the idea of little money and a lot of food. I love going to this restaurant very much.

my favourite restaurant essay for class 3

On occasions, I always go with my family to eat at my favorite restaurant, me and my siblings. The name of this restaurant is Crazy about you.

Your imagination will surely go with this wonderful name. And it is worth it in fact, it is dedicated to food and dancing as well, as it contains an area dedicated to dancing in different forms. There are always new people and different requests for dances that express their reference.

Eating is more fun while watching, and my brothers and I often participate in dancing. It makes us have a lot of fun and have a great time.

I like it very much when my dad and mom share a quiet dance. It makes us feel so happy when we see them smiling and nothing distracts them for a few minutes.

This place is my favorite and one day when I make a family I would like to go back and spend such a wonderful family time.

my favourite restaurant essay for class 6

My favorite restaurant is sweet and savory restaurant. This restaurant is famous for serving very delicious meals such as burgers, chicken and Italian pasta. It also features wonderful dessert meals, whether hot or cold.

This place is my favorite because I always love variety and innovation and I don’t like to eat the same meal whenever I go there. I would rather try all their varieties. Especially sweet dishes that always make me feel happy and re-energize me after eating a heavy meal.

In fact, I love to eat a lot and have a great appetite. I like to eat until I feel full. So this is my favorite restaurant because it serves a large plate of food. Not like those famous restaurants that serve small samples in the middle of the plate.

I would very much love to come back and eat there from time to time and try some spicy food like Indian food. Although they are not specialized in it, but they offer some wonderful simple meals that contain different spices. I also like the way the meat is grilled and the spices used. It has a sharp and clear taste.

Definitely very soon I will be going again to this restaurant and I am glad that I have a favorite restaurant that can make me happy.

my favourite restaurant essay for class 7

My favorite restaurant is very simple and it’s just a car parked by the road near my house with a man working on it always smiling. He makes snacks called hot dog sandwiches. Its price is very low, it tastes great, it is nice to talk with friends and eat in the middle of the road where the air and friends are.

I often have it on my way back from school. And before going to exercise, I find it wonderful to eat this meal. It makes me feel energized.  My friends in training often ask to bring them some. Everyone loves a hot dog, it is suitable for all times. Quick to prepare, easy to eat and completely satiating.

Of course, this is not a famous restaurant or one of the famous dishes, but always the most important thing is psychological comfort and happiness. This place always makes me happy. All I need is a hot dog sandwich and a glass of soda water.

my first visit to a restaurant essay 250 words

My first visit to a restaurant was years ago and it was the famous McDonald’s. My family used to take me there to have a happy meal and to provide a space for the children to play.

Always in these restaurants in every country you will find a dedicated area for children in which they can play and practice a lot of activities.

I remember my first day getting a good meal and a gift too. The gift was a small car. I was very happy with it, I didn’t want to play with it at the time, but kept it until I got home and then played with it.

I remember very well that I was able to keep it intact and working for several years later. One of the wonderful things that delight children are such gifts.

I remember the games in the place and there was this room full of little balls that we jump on, and we swim in trying to get out, and dive inside and throw them all over the place.

I also remember participating with other children in the race for those who climb to the skating game, and shouting loudly while skating.

Definitely this place is my favorite and I like to go back and eat there, and it would be great if I got one of the gifts they offer.

It is great that my family took me to this place where I was able to create very wonderful memories. And build a good family bond with them. Such outings make you always want to accompany them, eat with them, and visit different places.

Of course, I now have several different experiences from visiting restaurants, but my first restaurant remains the best, and returning to it makes me feel happiness that I often need it.

I love the idea of ​​a place that makes me happy and I want to go back to it and bring back some good memories. Thank you McDonald’s for being a partner in this happiness memories.

Describe your favourite place to eat out

Describe your favourite place to eat out.

You should say:

  • where it is
  • what kind of food it serves
  • what the decor is like

and explain why it is your favourite place to eat out.

Model Answer 1:

Malaysia has become a multicultural country and a wide number of people visit the country every year while the numbers of permanents residents are not so small as well. Consequently, there are a great number of restaurants and eateries have been formed to meet the hunger of the people.

Physically located in 19 Persiaran KLCC, Troika Sky Dining is my favourite place to eat out. This is a large wide space to enjoy the foods and I mostly come to take my dinners here, occasionally. The impressive look is one of the key causes of visiting the restaurant frequently and the upper space also allows me to see the city at the night as it is on the top floor of the building. The restaurant offers a grand view of Kuala Lumpur and the views are breathtaking particularly in night times. The entire city is illuminated with colourful lights, vehicles are moving from here and there on the streets. The other important reason for falling in love with this restaurant is its yummy foods and cordial services. It is a different experience for me to eat inside the dining rooms of the restaurants which are filled with all ages of people.

Though the restaurant is located in a crowded place, it could be differentiated from the other restaurants and for its special and delicious foods. The restaurant, Troika Sky Dining, serves almost all kind of foods to the people. Since the restaurant is located at a prominent place in the city, a large number of visitors come here every day and thus considering the wide number of visitors, it arranges for all types of dishes as per requirements. There are two dining spaces accompanied with a bar to meet the thirst of the visitors. The restaurant is famous for the traditional Malaysian cuisine. The bar is also enriched and offers all types of soft and hard drinks at a reasonable price. Taking foods at a high altitude is a really awesome experience for the visitors and thus they return as I do whenever they could manage time. If anyone wants to enjoy the meal here, it is important to take at least a three-course meal to get the real tastes. But it is not only the foods; it is also about the services and other cordial environments that attract the visitors.

The décor of the restaurant is exquisitely designed with modern architecture and enough to make anyone feel comfortable. The restaurant inside is highly decorated with modern furniture and amenities that are only found in the star rated restaurants. There are two separate dining spaces for the visitors while both of the dining rooms have access to the wine bar. The seats are limited and thus they serve on the ‘first come first served’ basis. Some of the seats at the restaurant are located by the side of the large window to enjoy the skyline of Kuala Lumpur. You can also get some sofas or small chairs and tables placed inside the restaurant for resting after the heavy meals. The wine bar is also furnished with valuable furniture and organised in a professional manner. The tables are made with the finest glass while the chairs and seats are made easier for the comfort of the visitors to sit back in a relaxed mode. One of the distribution desks is attached to a heavy glass while the other one is out of glass.

I like the restaurant most for several reasons. First of all, the location is accessible from any part of the city. The industrial skyline view of the restaurant is wonderful and particularly the night view is best indeed. The staffs are well trained and behaved and they welcome the guests with a cordial heart. I have observed their behaviours and found that there is nothing artificial with their attitudes and behaves with the guests, it is entirely natural. The other important fact is the foods. They serve warm and fresh cooked foods. Considering the charges, I think this is the best place for me to eat out in the entire city.

Model Answer 2:

Street foods in India are really interesting. Someone who has eaten the foods once will remember the foods for the lifetime. I am lucky to have the chances of testing the foods. I have some special places to take foods in streets and I like to take kebabs and parathas most from a street food selling shop on Marine Drive in Mumbai.

The shop sells various types of foods and locally produced beverages too. But most of the times, people gather there for having some locally handmade foods and enjoy the evening out of the home. The shop is always crowded and you need to stand in a queue or wait for a certain time to be served with foods. There are many regular customers of this shop and I am one of them.

The shop sells various types of local foods. Among them, the most notable are bread and egg fry, different types of kebabs, paratha, salads, beverages and many other food items. People come here as the foods are delicious and the preparation time is less. Besides, the shop owner maintains the rules for health and hygiene perfectly. So, the number of customers for his shop is more comparing the other surrounding food shops in the area. Further, all the foods are fresh and are cooked when you order them. Consequently, the consumers can enjoy the taste of some fresh foods.

This is a street shop but occupies a large space. The decoration is also attractive. The lighting system attracts attention from a notable distance. Besides, the seating arrangement is also nice. There are temporary sheds with folding chairs and tables for seating purpose. And also I like the foliage around the space as well. When someone sits in the chair, the feelings are outstanding. The cool breeze from the Sea makes them feel happy. Moreover, the environment turns very entertaining after the dusk. A lot of people come to visit the Marine Drive and many of them come to take their evening snacks or meals here. 

This is my favourite place to eat for many reasons. This is an interesting place indeed. If you have any privacy concern, this would not suit you. But if you want to enjoy with your friends and family, this is a perfect place. Every person who comes here falls in love with the place. In fact, I am in love too. Frequently, I visit the place with my friends. This is the meeting place for us and we pass around three or four days in a week here. I love the foods and environment. When the breeze from the sea arrives, it feels very enjoyable. The location is charming too. So, I come back here and enjoy myself.

My Favorite Food Essay


500 Words Essay On My Favorite Food

In order to perform well in life, our body needs energy. We get this energy from the food we eat. Without food, there will be no life. In today’s world, there are so many dishes available worldwide. Food comes in a wide variety all around the world. Dosa, Paneer, Naan, Chapati, Biryani, and more Indian delicacies are available. We are also offered western cuisines such as noodles, pasta, burgers, fries, pizzas and more dominating the food industry. In my favourite food essay, I will tell you about the food I like eating the most.

my favorite food essay

My Favorite Food

As the world is advancing day by day, it is becoming easier to get access to many kinds of food at our doorstep. Every day, we all want to consume great and delicious cuisine. There are many different varieties of food accessible all throughout the world. We all like different foods, however, my personal favourite is burgers. I have eaten many cuisines but my favourite food is definitely a burger. I cannot resist myself when it comes to burgers.

Burgers are one of the most convenient and easiest foods to eat on the fly when we’re in a hurry. We can have a burger at any time of day, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or supper, and maybe some fries and a Coke to go with it. Many restaurants are well-known for making their speciality burgers in a particular style. Preparation changes from one establishment to the next. But what exactly makes a burger taste so good? They will taste vary depending on where you go, but they are all built the same. It is made up of a bun, a ground meat patty, and various toppings like cheese, onion slices, lettuce, and other sauces.

They are so soft yet crunchy, fresh and juicy that I love eating them. Even though there are many kinds of burgers, my favourite one is a chicken burger. The chicken patty gives the burger a juicy taste and it tingles my taste buds every time I eat it. I can already smell and taste it in my mouth as soon as I walked inside McDonald’s or any other restaurant that serves chicken burgers. As soon as I take a huge mouthful of it, I forget about any problems or troubles that are going on in the outer world and concentrate my entire concentration just on my chicken burger.

I love eating a burger which is filled with cheese and vegetables . The more vegetables you add, the better it tastes. My personal favourite is lettuce. It gives the burger the right amount of freshness and crunchiness.

I always eat my burger with ketchup. Most importantly, the thing I love about eating burgers is that I get to eat French fries along with them. They work as a great side to the dish and also make my stomach full.

Even though I liked eating a burger from a famous fast food joint, nothing beats the chicken burger my mother makes at home. She prepares everything from scratch, even the burger. Thus, it is extremely fresh and healthy too.

I know and feel that burgers have the great flavour and taste that would make anyone’s stomach pleased after a long day of work. I can tell by the reactions on people’s faces when they order their preferred burger variant. Overall, I don’t believe any other fast food will taste as good as a chicken burger. It’s just difficult to think that something will triumph in the future. As a result, I consider my favourite dish to be the best ever created.

A Great Variety

Perhaps the great thing about burgers is the great variety they offer. It has options for all people, who prefer vegetarian, non-vegetarian and even vegans. Thus, you can select the patty of your burger and dive right in.

There are a large number of burger joints being started in every corner of the city, each serving a variety of their own specialised and self-curated recipes. Burgers that are health-friendly and a go-to with a diet are also being introduced by these newly upcoming burger places. There are a lot many burger cafes that give their customers the choice to create their own burgers by providing them with a choice between patties, fillings, veggies, sauces as well as the number of burger layers they want.

Even though my personal favourite is a chicken burger, I also enjoy eating cheeseburgers and vegetable burgers. For me, all burgers taste delicious. Whenever we go out to eat with friends , I always order a burger.

My friends who do not eat non-vegetarian also eat burgers thanks to the great variety it offers. When we order food at home, we make sure to offer all kinds of burgers from cheeseburgers to chicken burgers, so that we get a taste of everything in our meal. Thus, I love burgers and their great variety makes it better.

Conclusion of My Favorite Food Essay

Even though my favourite food is a burger, I enjoy other foods as well like Pizza and Pasta. However, I feel when it comes to eating daily, nothing beats homemade food. The food we eat daily is what helps us gain energy. We cannot eat our favourite food daily as it will become boring then, but our staple food is something we enjoy eating on an everyday basis.

FAQ of My Favorite Food Essay

Question 1: Why do we need food?

Answer 1: We need food because it provides nutrients, energy for activity, growth. Similarly, all functions of the body like breathing, digesting food, and keeping warm are made possible because of food. It also helps in keeping our immune system healthy.

Question 2: Should you eat your favourite food all the time?

Answer 2: No, never. Favourite foods are meant to be enjoyed when there is any special occasion, or when you are tired of your regular homemade food. Eating too much of your favourite food will make your taste buds adjust to it and eventually, it will not remain our favourite. Excess of anything is bad and the same goes for our favourite food. Thus, we must eat it occasionally so that it remains our favourite.

Question 3: Is fast food healthy? Should we not consume fast food at all?

Answer 3: Fast food is often high in calories, sodium, and harmful fat, with one meal frequently providing enough for a whole day. It is also deficient in nutrients and nearly devoid of fruit, vegetables, and fibre. That doesn’t mean you should completely avoid fast food. It is feasible to eat fast food without jeopardising your healthy diet. Take advantage of the nutritious side dishes available at many fast-food places. Look for meals that include lean proteins, vegetables, and fibre, and avoid anything that is supersized.

Smell, appearance, sounds, sights, tastes and texture are all things to include in a descriptive essay about a location. The idea of a descriptive essay is to recreate the item, event or, in this case, place in someone’s head.

A linking sentence coherently connects two other sentences together in an essay. It is placed between the two sentences in order to provide them with more context, allowing the paragraph to proceed in a logical fashion.

An objective description essay describes an object, place or person with factual details. The writer avoids imparting his personal opinions or feelings into the essay. The goal is to use words to create a picture of the item being described...

Hachiko: A Dog's Story

Hachiko: A Dog's Story Movie Poster

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 to the train station every day and return each afternoon to greet him. Sadly his master departs one day, passes away and never returns.

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 master. During his visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the town square. He teaches the local people love, compassion and 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.
