the first movie that made me cry !

I'm not the type who cries over sappy movies. I usually just stay silent, teary eyed, whenever a movie hit me hard. But this one caused me sobbing eyes. Hachiko is not just about your ordinary dog-man relationship movie, it's about faith, devotion and undying love which actually happens in real life. I wonder if there are still existing Hachiko out there, either human or animal. His loyalty for his master lasted until the day it died.




Picture of Hachikō (in real life)
Breed : Akita Inu
Gender : Male
Born : November 10, 1923
near the city of Ōdate, Akita Prefecture
Died : March 8, 1934 (aged 12)
Shibuya, Tokyo
Resting place : National Science Museum of Japan in Ueno, Tokyo.
Owner : Hidesaburō Ueno
Appearance : golden brown with cream color on upper face






Hachikō exhibited at the National Science Museum of Japan in Ueno.








In April 1934, a bronze statue in his likeness was erected at Shibuya Station and Hachikō himself was present at its unveiling. The statue was recycled for the war effort during World War II. In 1948 The Society for Recreating the Hachikō Statue commissioned Takeshi Ando, son of the original artist who had since died, to make a second statue. The new statue, which was erected in August 1948, still stands and is an extremely popular meeting spot. The station entrance near this statue is named "Hachikō-guchi", meaning "The Hachikō Exit", and is one of Shibuya Station's five exits.

While most people dream of going to Paris and witness the Eiffel Tower and so. Mine is a different dream getaway. Although I also dreamt of taking photos of me perpendicular to that of Eiffel Tower, but I’d choose GREECE over the inevitable Paris!.. Aside from its relevance to the famous Greek mythology, everything about this place seems so good. Maybe the movies Sisterhood of Traveling Pants, Mamma Mia and My Life in Ruins (all are my favorites) play a major influence why I so love to go there. These films sort of showed that Greece is a wonderful place to visit, especially for those who wanted a little space away from the urban life. People at Greece seem to live a simpler life, which makes this country more admirable.

The next thing I want to do is study about their culture and their people…and perhaps learn a little with their language..*sigh sigh*

Here is a trailer of Mamma Mia...The film captures most Greece's finest places :



I want to go at these places:

SANTORINI



CHURCH IN THE HILL TOP (AGIOANNIS)



SKOPELOS



Greece, I’ll get to you soon..=)
Αγαπώ την Ελλάδα ( I LOVE GREECE)
