Hashima Island, an old deserted mining island in Nagasaki Prefecture which had been recently reopened to visitors after being closed off for 35 years, was used as the location for the filming of the music video. Photos for the CD cover and packaging were also shot there.[3]

The single debuted at the number-one spot on the Japanese Oricon daily charts, selling about sixty-five thousand copies in one day.[4] On the Oricon weekly charts, the single debuted at No. 1, with the first week sales of 180,723 copies. With the number-one debut, the single became their 43rd number-one single on Oricon weekly charts.[5]
