About Tokyo Tech

Tokyo Tech Song and commemorative fanfare

The Tokyo Tech Song is said to have been established on May 26, 1956. Renowned poet Tatsuji Miyoshi wrote the lyrics while then Tokyo Tech music faculty member Saburo Moroi composed the music. The piece, in C minor - C major, was completed in early March and then first introduced at the graduation ceremony held on March 26. The Song was performed1 the Tokyo Tech staff choral society.

The four existing scores are clean handwritten copies for orchestra, male and mixed four-part harmony, and piano accompaniment. Originals are displayed2 in the office of the president next to lyrics written with a calligraphy brush.

In July 2010, the Song's lyrics were newly worded into more contemporary Japanese while maintaining the original verse as much as possible, and were also translated into English.
