Pedrosa tackles Tokyo on a mission

His first stop was the beautiful Konno Hachimangu Shrine in Shibuya, dedicated to the war god Hachiman, where the Spaniard took a moment to appreciate the Shinto spirits and meditated with his Samurai spirit in mind in the vibrantly coloured red and orange complex. Next, Pedrosa set off for Minato-Ku, where Honda had a fan day organised at their headquarters alongside teammate Marc Marquez and Moto2™ rider Takaaki Nakagami (Idemitsu Honda Team Asia). There, the three-time World Champion scanned the crowd of cheering fans and noticed Kohji a few rows from the front. So, once his time on stage was finished, he went down to meet the excited young fan.
