National anthem of Japan

The lyrics of the National Anthem of Japan

君が代

君きみが代よは
千代ちよに八千代やちよに
細さざれ石いしの
巌いわおとなりて
苔こけの生むす迄まで

Kimigayo

Kimigayo wa
Chiyo ni yachiyo ni
Sazare-ishi no
Iwao to narite
Koke no musu made

His Imperial Majesty’s Reign

May your reign
Continue for a thousand, eight thousand generations,
Until the tiny pebbles
Grow into massive boulders
Lush with moss

The National Anthem of Japan was written by Kokin Wakashū and composed by Yoshiisa Oku and Akimori Hayashi and Hiromori Hayashi.

Japan has not an official motto.
