推薦評論 - Recommended Reviews for Nezu Shrine -
・Totally worth the visit if you are in the neighborhood!

・A really good temple with a Japanese atmosphere.

The University of Tokyo
The main campus of UTokyo is opened to visitors. You can use the cafeterias, restaurant and shops. Do you know The statue of Chuken Hachiko at Utokyo? This is at Agriculture Building of Tokyo University.Be a witness!They really wanted to see each other in 90 years. This is the very fantastic catch up!

Why is it there, at Agriculture Building of Tokyo University (“Yayoi Campus) ?
Because Hachi’s owner, Eizaburo Ueno was a professor of the Tokyo Imperial University (the precursor of the present Univ. of Tokyo). On 8 March 2015, marking the 80 years memorial of Hachi’s death, the statue of Hachi and Dr. Ueno were built and unveiled the monument. Since then many people came to see the statue on the Yayoi campus, Univ. of Tokyo, it is now becoming one of the Tokyo popular sight seeing spots. When you come and see the statue, you will also find a permanently stored Hachiko’s heart and related document, and Dr. Ueno’s bronze bust, which are all stored in the Museum of Agriculture Department right next to the Agriculture main gate.
