In the most recent news, a Snow Miku wrapped bus has been announced to operate in Tokyo starting from today until May 31st. The collaboration this time is with Hato Bus, one of the most renowned sightseeing tour services in Tokyo.
The Snow Miku wrapped bus will be an exclusive ride for Dynamic Tokyo course, featuring a visit to several Tokyo attractions such as the Tokyo Tower, Imperial Palace Nijubashi Bridge and many more.
Two different wrappings are applied to the bus, including Snow Miku Sky Town advertisement on one side and Sapporo tourism on the other. The bus will remain in operation up to May 31st. Below are photos of the bus spotted early by twitter user @hajime24.

In entertaining recent news, it seems a (currently unknown) Japanese construction company has adopted Hatsune Miku as the (literal) poster girl for their “No Trespassing” posters. A recent photo by @raizinng on twitter revealed the poster for the world to see.
Located at the Toride City intersection in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan, the poster shows Miku holding a shovel with a negi (green onion) handle. Hatsune Miku seems to be working many second jobs besides being a virtual idol.
Hatsune Miku fans attempting to visit MikuBook.com today were instead greeted by the above message, announcing the closure of the site. According to a tweet by Crypton Future Media CEO, Hiroyuki Itoh (posted below), the site closure will allow the CFM staff to focus their efforts and resources on other future projects.
MikuBook.com launched in July 2011, with the “Very Early Beta!” release first announced to visitors of Anime Expo 2011, where the massively popular Mikunopolis concert event took place. At first it focused on a community-based Vocaloid music suggestion service, which offered new songs for you to try based on the favorites you chose, and favorites by others.
The site later went on to also host game events, offer news updates, and act as a hub for the “Find Me!” campaign for Miku Expo. We’d like to thank Crypton for their service in providing a site for fans to enjoy, and we look forward to what their future projects hold in store.
You know Hatsune Miku’s presence worldwide is growing when her image is appearing on commercial vehicles. First there were Snow Miku trains in Thailand, then Snow Miku buses in Singapore. However these were all officially endorsed. It’s different when a fan decides to decorate their business vehicle just for fun.
A fan from Japan recently tweeted images of an itasha tow truck in Thailand, fully decorated in Hatsune Miku vinyls wraps. We can only see one side of the vehicle, but we see illustrations from at least five different illustrators, including iXima and Tony. I’m positive that any Hatsune Miku fan would be delighted to see this truck pull up to transport their car.
