What is this line for??
This photo was taken after 11:00PM on January 2nd.
This is a line of people of "hatsumode" (the New Year's visit to shrines/temples) waiting to pray at the Sensoji Temple.
For the first three days of each year, we see this long line of people in front of Sensoji Temple.
During the daytime, the line is more than 200m up until Kaminarimon Gate.
Hatsumode is still such an important custom for Japanese people even in this modern time. Why don't you join the line and try the custom with these people?
