The 9 members of the Kyushu-based idol group selected for the song are Takaki Yumi, Araki Sakura, Yamaki Ayano, Momosaki Mayu, Amano Natsu, Yoshikawa Chiaki Sara, Kaizuki Rana, Sakai Asaka, and Sugimoto Yusa.
LinQ was selected by Level-5 to perform a song for the series because of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes which caused damage all over Kyushu. The company is based in Fukuoka, Kyushu, which is also the hometown of LinQ (whose name stands for Love in Qushu.)
LinQ's work in raising public morale and in helping charitable aid efforts in the area brought them to the attention of Level-5, who chose to collaborate with the group to showcase the energy of Kyushu and create a work that would cheer up the island and all of Japan.
Like other Yo-kai Watch theme songs, "Furusato Japon" was composed by Kikuya Tomoki, and the lyrics were written by Takagi Takashi.
The CD single of "Furusato Japon" will be released from major label Avex Trax on the 28th of September. Six different editions of the CD will be released: the four LinQ editions include a randomly-selected photo of a group member, while the two Yo-kai Watch editions include a QR code which can be redeemed for a Five-Star Coin.

Note: the line "私達 可愛い子だから 旅をする" (watashitachi kawaii ko dakara tabi wo suru) refers to a Japanese proverb, "可愛い子には旅をさせよ" (kawaii ko ni wa tabi wo saseyo), meaning "If you love your child, send them on a journey". The reasoning behind this is that it's important for a child to experience and learn on their own, rather than be coddled by their parents.
- This is the 3rd and last season 2 Japanese ending.
- This is the second Japanese ending to be animated traditionally like the anime rather than in CG; the first being Idol Wa Ooh-Nya-Nya No Ken.
