Daniel Ricciardo in Tokyo

Daniel spent the morning in Tokyo ahead of the Grand Prix, to experience some Japanese traditional culture.

He first took part in Gokito, Japanese Shinto Prayer, at the Asakusa Shrine in Tokyo, where a priest prayed for a victory with a special Japanese blessing.

He then travelled to the Yanaka district to the Zenshoan Temple to take part in Zazen, Zen meditation, which is at the heart of Zen Buddhist practice (its translation is seated meditation). The aim of Zazen is to just be, so to suspend all thinking, letting words, ideas, images and thoughts pass by without getting involved in them.
