Kimigayo arranged for Recorder Consort.

Kimi ga Yo (Kimi ga Yo?), often translated as "May your reign last forever" is Japan’s national anthem, and is also the world’s shortest national anthems in current use with 11 measures and 32 characters. The lyrics are based on a Waka poem written in the Heian period, sung to a melody written in the later Meiji Era. The current melody was chosen in 1880, replacing an unpopular melody composed eleven years earlier.

Although Kimi ga Yo had long been Japan’s de facto national anthem, it was only legally recognized as such in 1999 with the passing of a bill on national flag and anthem. After its adoption, there was controversy over the performance of the anthem at public school ceremonies. Along with the Hinomaru flag, Kimi ga Yo is claimed by some to be a symbol of Japanese imperialism and militarism.
