Sensoji Temple felt touristy compared to all the other shrines and temples I visited. It was crowded and to get to the temple, you had to pass through a small walkway filled with shops selling food and souvenirs. It is a Buddhist temple and is Tokyo’s oldest temple, dating back to 645. During World War II, the temple was bombed and for the most part destroyed. It was rebuilt later and is a symbol of rebirth and peace to the Japanese people.
There were many little drawers around the temple. For 100 yen, you can consult the oracle and divine answers to your questions by taking a stick from one of the drawers and reading the answer.
There was also a large incense burner outside of the temple. People would try to spread the smoke of the incense over themselves to purify, heal, and bring them luck.
