Kimigayo, meaning “His Imperial Majesty’s Reign”, is the national anthem of Japan. While the lyrics were written during the Heian period (794-1185) as an anonymous poem, the melody was chosen in 1880. The music was written by Yoshiisa Oku and Akimori Hayashi, and was arranged by Franz Eckert. This beautiful piece is played every morning aboard all military bases across the whole of Japan and Okinawa.
The English Lyrics:
May the reign of the Emperor/continue for a thousand, nay,/eight thousand generations/and for the eternity that it takes/for small pebbles to grow into a great rock/and become covered with moss.
This piano arrangement of Kimi Ga Yo (National Anthem of Japan) is fantastic to play! You can learn it with our Synthesia piano tutorial, or from our official Sheet Music Boss sheet music!
