Have you ever been to snowy Sapporo? If you are a Miku fan, then maybe the coming February is a good time to visit the place. The Hokkaido capital is holding its 68th Sapporo Snow Festival, and once again it will include in its events the exciting winter festival SNOW MIKU 2017 from February 6 to February 12.
Yuki Miku, the alternate blue and silver color Hatsune Miku that represents winter, has always supported Hokkaido. Yuki Miku first attended the event as a giant snow sculpture back in 2010 and since then SNOW MIKU has been part of its official program.
The event’s administration has been seeking costume design ideas from fans through its online channels. The 2017 costume theme is ‘starry sky/constellation’ that symbolizes Hokkaido’s beautiful winter night. This year will be the event’s 8th anniversary and there will be a snow sculpture display at Odori park, commodity sales and several interesting shows with special guests.
Prior to the festival, a special Yuki Miku Train car will go into operation from November 21, 2016. The day before the train’s release (November 20), a special preview event will be held for both press and public.
