Music video

Hamasaki in the music video for "Sunset".

The music videos for 'Sunrise' and 'Sunset' were filmed on a sightseeing tower at the bay of Chiba prefecture, Kantō. This tower, the Futtsu-Misaki, is a 100 year commemoration structure for the end of Meiji period (1868). Members of TeamAyu (Hamasaki's official fan club) were able to apply to be part of the audience for the PVs. Almost 1000 people applied for participation, and about 300 of those were selected.

The choreographers for the PVs were Ayumi Hamasaki's dancers Zin for Sunrise and Maro for Sunset. The PVs feature all of Ayumi's dancers and 300 fans.

In the first video, Ayumi is hopping around and laughing; the fans are waving towels; and the male dancers are shouting, dancing, and animating the fans. The entire video shows Ayumi's performance.

The second video, 'Sunset', is set on the same structure as the first, the morning light having been replaced by a sun setting in the background. This video features only the female dancers and Ayumi. Like the first one, the video shows only Ayumi's 'Sunset' performance.
