Travel | Tokyo 115 5 Senses – Scent IT’S SMOKING! Crowds flock around Sensō-ji Temple’s smoky censer, eager to get close to the smouldering incense. Against all medical advice (in other words, please be careful!), temple visitors waft the incense smoke over their bodies, believing it to possess healing powers. Sporty types with ‘tennis elbow’, for example, may poke their arms into the smelly cloud, while spectacle-wearers can sometimes be seen pulling the smoke over their eyes! It’s enough to make you cry! Banyak orang berkerumun di dekat pedupaan Kuil Sensō-ji, berusaha mendekat ke dupa yang menyala. Para pengunjung membiarkan asap dupa mengembus ke tubuh mereka karena mereka percaya asap tersebut memiliki kekuatan penyembuh. Penderita nyeri otot siku, misalnya, dapat menyorongkan siku mereka ke dalam asap tersebut, sementara pemakai kacamata sesekali terlihat mengipasi asap ke mata mereka! Cukup untuk membuat mata Anda berair! Visitors flock around Sensō-ji Temple’s smoking censer. Five-tiered pagoda, Sensō-ji Temple. Reading ‘o-mikuji’ fortunes, Sensō-ji Temple.
