An excited mature-age exchange student has been spotted in Shibuya taking a photograph of the wrong Hachiko.

“Umm, that’s the Tower Records Hachiko, dude,” thought one passerby.

The gaijin posted the photo to Instagram with a caption explaining how he had “long dreamt” of the day where he would “meet the famous Shibuya Hachiko”.

“Just waiting for my tomodachi now. I can’t shinjuru that watashi am here,” he continued.

The man’s exchange student friends were forced to wait an extra 40 minutes at the real Hachiko.
