A woman pressed her hands together while gripping the incense sticks

Shot at Senso-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Asakusa, Tokyo.

Came to the Senso-Ji temple, the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo. And the area around the temple is one of the few places where it has been bustling since the old days. The temple kept attracting many worshipers for a long time. And the power seems to go over the waters recently. Not only Japanese travelers but also foreign travelers come to this temple.

I saw many foreign tourists wriggling in the precinct also on that day. Both Euramerican tourists and Asian tourists were seen. It is easy to recognize the Euramerican because of their appearance. Yet it takes a keen eye to distinguish Asian foreign tourists from Japanese worshipers.

The woman in this photo might come from an Asian country. I thought the way she prayed was different from the way in Japan. Most of Japanese don't pray while gripping incense sticks. However, I saw many people praying in that way during traveling Asian countries. So it's very likely that she is one of the foreign travelers.
