More people have been touring Japan than ever before, with more than 20 million sightseers in 2016! One of Japan’s big attractions, alongside “Cool Japan, fusion with tradition”, is of course the delicious food from all over the country (which we’ve had several opportunities to enjoy).

In the new music video “OISHII” TRIP, Hatsune Miku is more than happy to show new travelers the many delicious delicacies Japan has to offer, from Hokkaido in the far North to Kyushu in the South! The animation may be slightly eccentric to some, with Hatsune Miku appearing slightly different than usual, but this is easy to overlook thanks to the catchy music. You’re also treated to some of Japan’s culture as Miku tours the local shrines and cities.

This collaboration music video comes courtesy of Taste of Japan/MAFF and various producers, including BIGHEAD, Junichi, Mio Aoyama and more! Check out the music video below.
