「抜刀隊」 (Battoutai: Sword-Drawing Unit) • English Translation

Lyrics: 外山正一 (Masakasu Toyama)
Composition: シャルル・ルルー (Charles Edouard Gabriel Leroux)

Often just called “Battoutai”, this 1885 song refers to the close combat troops temporarily organized during the largest, severe battle of the Satsuma Rebellion. Those that especially excelled in swordsmanship were selected out of police superintendents led by Kawaji Toshiyoshi. It worked as imperial logistical support and conducted battle.

Charles Leroux was a foreign government advisor during the Meiji Era to assist in modernization. After the song was produced, it was released during a concert at the Rokumeikan. It became a popular song with inspiration from Western music (which was unusual/novel at the time). Of course, throughout time, the pace has changed.

Note: This was cross-referenced with a modern Japanese rendition.

***

吾は官軍 我が敵は
天地容れざる 朝敵ぞ
敵の大将 たる者は
古今無双の 英雄で
これに従う つわものは
共に慓悍 決死の士
鬼神に恥じぬ 勇あるも
天の許さぬ 反逆を
起こせし者は 昔より
栄えしためし 有らざるぞ’

We are the Imperial army, and our enemy is
The enemy of the court forbade in heaven and earth
The enemy leader is
A hero unparalleled in history
Even his subordinates too are
Fiercely strong warriors prepared for death
They have a gallantry equal to the demons and gods
But those that have committed treason against
The Heavens have never prospered

敵の亡ぶる それ迄は
進めや進め 諸共に
玉散る剣 抜きつれて
死する覚悟で 進むべし

Until the enemy is destroyed
All together, move forth, move forth
Unsheathing our swords that shine like precious stone
We must press forwards, resolved to die

皇国の風と もののふは
その身を護る 魂の
維新このかた 廃れたる
日本刀の 今更に
また世に出ずる 身のほまれ
敵も味方も 諸共に
刃の下に 死すべきに
大和魂 あるものの
死すべき時は 今なるぞ
人に後れて 恥かくな

There were souls that guarded
The samurai and the Japanese Empire’s ways, but
At this time now, the katana
That had died out in the Restoration
Again brings honour in wielding it
All together, ally or foe
Those that possess the Yamato spirit
Ought to die below the sword
The time we ought to die is now
Do not bring shame when we leave people

敵の亡ぶる それ迄は
進めや進め 諸共に
玉散る剣 抜きつれて
死する覚悟で 進むべし

Until the enemy is destroyed
All together, move forth, move forth
Unsheathing our swords that shine like precious stone
We must press forwards, resolved to die
