  • This is Moritaka's first single under One Up Music (now Zetima), but not as an official member of UP-FRONT PROMOTION.
  • Moritaka wrote the lyrics to "Watarasebashi" after she revisited the bridge over Watarasegawa near her old college in Ashikaga when she was facing artistic and identity issues.
  • "Watarasebashi" was later covered by other artists like Matsuura Aya, Goto Maki, Jounouchi Sanae, and CHAKA. Also, in 2007, the city of Ashikaga inscribed tanaka (short poems) based off the lyrics all over the Yakumo Jinja.
