The Japanese national anthem (kokka) is "Kimigayo". When the Meiji period began in 1868 and Japan made its debut as a modern nation, there was no Japanese national anthem. In fact, the person who stressed the need for a national anthem was a British military instructor, John William Fenton.
Lyrics of the Japanese national anthem The words were taken from a tanka (31 syllable poem) found in the Kokin-wakashu, an anthology of 10th century poems.
The music was composed in 1880 by Hiromori Hayashi, a musician of the imperial court and was then harmonized according to the Gregorian mode by Franz Eckert, a German music conductor. "Kimigayo (the reign of the emperor)" became Japan's national anthem in 1888.
The word "kimi" refers to the Emperor and the words contain the prayer: "May the reign of the Emperor last forever". The poem was composed at the time when the emperor reigned over the people. During the Second World War, Japan was an absolute monarchy that moved the emperor to the top. The Japanese imperial army has invaded many Asian countries. The motivation was that they were fighting for the holy emperor.
After the Second World War, the Emperor became the symbol of Japan by the Constitution and lost all political power. Since then, various objections have been raised about singing "Kimigayo" as a national anthem. However, at present, it remains sung in national festivals, international events, schools and holidays.
