Hachiko in Japanese colloquialism also refers to the park itself where the Akita-breed dog Hachiko is memorialized. More formally, the park is called "Hachiko Koen" (Hachiko Park).

At the park, a fairly tall pedestal gives the bronze dog a clear view of the JR train station over people's heads.
Since the dog is easily visible from a distance, and since the park is located at a convenient place to begin a walk around Shibuya makes Hachiko Park is a very popular meeting place.
