Delp Featured on TV for Participation in Hikone Festival

William Smith senior Katherine Delp, currently studying abroad in Hikone, Japan, participated in a festival at Hikone Castle on Saturday, Oct. 30. Participants wore traditional clothing and walked around the castle grounds talking with visitors. Delp was dressed as an Edo-period princess (ohime), wearing traditional kimono, wig, and makeup. She was interviewed by several news crews, and a portion of one interview was shown on national television during a feature on the Hikone festival. The clip was titled “A foreign lady becomes a princess.”
