"Wishing on the Same Star" is Namie Amuro's 21st solo single under the Avex Trax label. Released on September 11, 2002, the song was meant to be her last before a hiatus that would have seen her transplanting herself from Tokyo, Japan to New York for the purposes of artist development. As the last of her singles as a pop artist, it is the most commercially successful from the album, Style (2003).

The song retains the same arrangement and chorus from the 1991 single by freestyle singer Keedy, as well as the 1994 single by Australian girl pop group Girlfriend and the 1996 album cut by American dance music singer Judy Cheeks.
