The number is average calculated per day at Asakusa station on Tobu Line for the year 2016. The earthquake year 2011 made numbers declined to 48,569 due to the earthquake/tsunami/fukushima disaster, but recovered a bit to 49,362 in 2016. It includes ride-on passengers as well as get-off passengers. At another Asakusa station on Tokyo Metro Line was 105,784 people a day. Tawaramachi station had 32,228 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 : 769,307
Ikebukuro : 559,920
Tokyo : 439,554
Yokohama : 414,683
Shinagawa : 371,787 (new mag-lev station in near future)
Shibuya : 371,336
Above is Top 6 of JR
Akihabara : 246,623 (number 9)
Ueno : 182,693 (number 13)
Maihama (Disneyland) : 78,277
Narita Airport (T1) : 6,952
Narita Airport (T2&T3) : 4,952
Hirataki : 7 (only 7 passengers daily used  iiyama line from this station)
Kuzakai : 1 (yes, only 1 person 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.
