On December 2, an event was held to celebrate 100 years since the birth of the ever-faithful Hachiko. About 40 Akitas and their owners gathered from around the country and set out for a commemorative walk around Shibuya. Join us as we listen to the story in Japanese, review key expressions including "nakunaru" (to pass away), and spotlight the Akita dog, which in recent years has become popular overseas.
