To commemorate 15 years since her debut, the singer is currently in the middle of her nationwide tour 'Ayaka 15th Anniversary Tour 2021 ~Motto Ii Hi ni~.'

The DVD will include the MV and making footage for "Kinmokusei," while the second CD will include audio tracks from Ayaka's debut 15th anniversary session 'Room session.'
