The number is average calculated per day at Asakusa station on Tobu Line for the year 2014. The earthquake year 2011 made numbers declined a bit to 48,569, but recovered a lot to 53,190 in 2014. It includes ride-on passengers as well as get-off passengers. At another Asakusa station on Tokyo Metro Line was 97,229 people a day. Tawaramachi station had 29,170 everyday. For those who would be curious about the numbers/figures for another big stations, here's some picked up statistics of major JR stations (please note that JR counts only ride-on passengers, therefore, to compare with Tobu Line and Tokyo Metro Line, JR figures need to be doubled). (daily ride-on passenger)
Shinjuku : 748,157
Ikebukuro : 549,503
Tokyo : 418,148
Yokohama : 403,905
Shibuya : 371,789 (The crossing of Hachiko Monogatari live camera is here )
Above is Top 5 of JR
Akihabara : 241,063 (number 9)
Ueno : 182,468 (number 13)
Maihama (Disneyland) : 77,029
Narita Airport (T1) : 6,948
Narita Airport (T2) : 4,114
Shinano Shiratori : 7 (only 7 passengers daily used  iiyama line from this station)
Kuzakai : 2 (yes, only 2 people average got-on from the station, Yamada Line)
You might have heard of that Shinjuku has 3 - 4 million (3,000,000 - 4,000,000, depending on statistic and on which area specificly measure) people everyday which is the figure including not only JR but other private railways such as Toei Subway, Tokyo Metro, Odakyu and Keio. The X crossing, diagonal crossing, scramble intersection in front of Hachiko (the dog statue), Shibuya station, has about 800,000 people a day. It may take several lives to shake all of their hands, so let's not take it (each encounter) for granted.
