What statue is it? I thought maybe Balto, but it isn’t his statue.
His name is Hachikō.
From the wikipedia article:
In 1924, Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo, took in Hachikō, a golden brown Akita, as a pet. During his owner’s life, Hachikō greeted him at the end of each day at the nearby Shibuya Station. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno did not return. The professor had suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage and died, never returning to the train station where Hachikō was waiting. Every day for the next nine years the dog waited at Shibuya station.
Hachikō attracted the attention of other commuters. Many of the people who frequented the Shibuya train station had seen Hachikō and Professor Ueno together each day. They brought Hachikō treats and food to nourish him during his wait. This continued for nine years with Hachikō appearing precisely when the train was due at the station.
sorry for my english

Oh… yes… I cried like a baby.
Watch the movie “hachi”, that s**t will make you cry.
It’s better the original version.
Sobbing like a baby…
I cried more watching this than the time I got kicked in the nuts.
Oh…. It’s the time I’ve cried the most…
