Do they treat this smoke as pain killer?

Not as a pain-killer, you waft the smoke over the body-part that you want to improve.

Incense stinks. Whenever I smell incense I become incensed.

Japanese voodoo medicine is awesome!

As opposed to voodoo medicine from which country?

Always enjoy visiting Sensoji but only get close enough to smell the scent, not breath the smoke.

Mmm, yakitori scented incense. Now that would be something else.

Anyways. The Sensoji temple grounds are very nice. I was lucky enough to get there early one drizzly morning, and it was super quiet with hardly any visitors yet. With the exception of the great temple itself and the 'thunder gates', the gardens and pond area can be very serene, as is the section where Bell of Time hangs. Well... quiet except for the cicadas anyway.
