Japanese princess cancels Hawaii visit

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A Japanese princess is canceling her visit to Hawaii after she fainted.

The Japanese consulate in Honolulu said Friday Princess Akiko was taken to a hospital as a precaution. The Imperial Household Agency in Japan announced she wouldn't be visiting Hawaii as scheduled.

Akiko was due to watch storytellers tell Japanese and Hawaiian myths at the Hawaii Theater in Honolulu over the weekend.

On Tuesday, she was expected 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.
