Before reaching the Main Hall of Senso-ji, there were many people participating in purification and other rituals. For more, click below.
I wish I could have taken a better photo of the temizuya or purification washing area, but there were so many people. The one here is guarded by dragons.
The area was filled with the smoke of incense from the burner.
The omikuji drawers. I was not aware they have information in English here. Next time I will try this. Either people were getting a lot of good luck fortunes or they had recently removed the bad ones people left.
