Professor Ueno and Hachiko
Hachiko Monogatari (1987)

The tragic, true story of "Japan's most faithful dog" was also made into a US version called Hachi: A Dog's Tale, starring Ricard Gere.

The original tells the story of Hachiko, a purebred Akita who meets his master, Professor Ueno, every day at the train station. Except, one day, the professor doesn't return after suffering a brain hemorrhage. For the next 10 years, Hachiko continues the routine, returning each afternoon to meet his human at the train station.
