A very large incense pot. You will be able to get the incense in the Laeokwak, and you can see the girl dressed in a kimono walking distance. Thai people.
Probably the most famous and visited shrine in Tokyo. And not without any reason, the building itself is huge on its own and you would appreciate it most. The grounds are also huge and you can stroll around the place all day long. With so many tourist visiting, comes all the shops also, they have almost everything in shops surrounding. Visiting during the day would be really packed, but lively as well.
Awe inspiring! Highly recommend coming early in the morning or later in the evening. The crowds are gone, and you can see the cool shutter art on closed shops and the grounds all lit up. Photos attached for reference (with and without crowds). There are toilets easily accessible and plenty of vending machines around.
