Worshipers were walking under the lantern

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

At the entrance of the main hall of the temple, there was a big lantern. And many worshipers were waiting for their turn to pray. Although it was a familiar sight, I noticed that it was uncommon to be hung such big lantern at the entrance of a Buddhist temple.

In most cases, a Chinese gong was hung there. Anyway, the temple was crowded as always. Every worshiper made an offering. So I wondered how much money was raised per a day.
