Royal Anthem Series: VII Japan

Today we have one of my favorites, Kimi ga Yo, the national anthem of Japan. The island nation of Japan is a constitutional monarchy in East Asia currently under the reign of HIM Emperor Akihito. Kimi ga Yo (May Your Reign Last Forever) is the national anthem but could also be considered a royal anthem as it is basically a simple but moving hymn of loyalty and praise to the Emperor of Japan.
