I’ll always remember our walks
For the LetsDrawSherlock Historical Moments challenge I wanted to draw Sherlock and Redbeard from the story of Hachiko. Whenever I visited Tokyo, meeting friends at Hachiko’s statue at Shibuya Station is pretty much a given. The bronze statue was built in memory of the “faithful dog” and Professor Ueno (of Tokyo University)’s relationship. Hachiko and the professor would walk together daily to the station where Ueno would then take the train to work. When he would come home later that day, Hachiko would always be waiting there for him so that they could walk back together. Unfortunately one day, Professor Ueno tragically passed away before he could come home. But for years Hachiko would continue to wait for his beloved professor to return.
