Sit and Learn with Yumi McDonald as she tells the story of Hachiko, an Akita that developed an unbreakable bond with its owner in Japan. Discover the tale of the dog who never stopped waiting for his master at Shibuya Station from McDonald, whose mother saw Hachiko as a child. Even meet an Akita in person!
