The Hachi Trail Tour

On a warm Saturday in April I visited Woonsocket, a small town in north Rhode Island where the film Hachi: A Dog’s Tale was filmed. I always wanted to go there because it’s really close to where I’m living now, plus a group of fans and dog lovers even made a Hachi Trail(see below) that has all noticeable filming places in it.

Following the trail map I was astonished that the town even put a Hachi statue in front of the train station, and I was able to rebuild the image and establish a connection to this touching film. Here is what I got:

It’s well worth the drive.
