Japanese princess to deliver talk in Hawaii

A Japanese princess is visiting Hawaii for the next week.

Princess Akiko is scheduled to watch storytellers tell Japanese and Hawaiian myths at the Hawaii Theater in Honolulu over the weekend.

On Tuesday, she’s scheduled to speak at Hawaii Pacific University about the history of Japanese art in the British Museum.

The princess has a doctorate from Oxford University, where she specialized in Japanese art in the Western world.

Akiko’s father was the late Prince Tomohito, a first cousin of Emperor Akihito.

Akiko arrives in Hawaii on Friday and will stay through next Thursday.
