It is the video of the approach to Hondo from Kaminarimon of Sensoji Temple.
About 90 stores which sell a souvenir thing, confectionery, etc. to the both sides of Omotesando which continues from Kaminari-mon to Hozomon stand side by side, and are being crowded with not only a visitor but those who enjoy shopping, or those who takes a memorial picture.
"Jokoro" (incense burner) is placed before Hondo (main temple building), and many incense sticks are offered.
Originally, the smoke of the incense burner was required in order to purify a worshipper's body, but there was a legend of "recover quickly if smoke is applied to an ill place", it was derived from the legend of "becoming wise if smoke is applied to the head" also spread in Japan.
For the reason, many people gathered to incense burner, and they apply smoke to the body or the head.

If Hondo is reached, eyes will look for a front altar, but the pictures drawn on the ceiling are also wonderful.
Please look up at a top, when you visit to pray to Hondo!
