An added benefit of visitors attending the exhibition at the Sapporo Factory Hall on February 10th~11th are these collectable charms, one of three different designs chosen at random. You can re-enter the venue to get additional pieces, if you like.

Crypton’s music label KarenT will be distributing this year’s special Snow Miku themed album titled “Nocturne of Snow Light”, priced at 1,200 Yen at the venue. It’ll come with the following tracks:

01. 四角い地球を丸くする / TOKOTOKO(西沢さんP) feat. 初音ミク <SNOW MIKU 2018テーマソング>
02. ひとりぼっちとココロの本と / PIPPO feat. 初音ミク

06. アイビィ / ジグ feat. 初音ミク
07. Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya! (Wafooooooo Remix) / daniwellP feat. 初音ミク <bonus track>

Similar to last year, the Dinos amusement centers and theaters will be participating in goods giveaways at their arcades, bowling alleys and movie theaters. These festivities begin December 23rd, and run until February 28th. As examples, you can win a free magnet with one of 8 different designs every time you spend at least 500 yen on a participating prize machine. Just contact a staff member before you insert the money!

At Dinos Bowling (ディノスボウル), you can get a free Snow miku mug with the purchase of a bowling game for just 2,500 Yen, with 4 designs to choose from. You can also collect a 5th design at the Dinos Cinemas (ディノスシネマズ) for 2,000 Yen, which also comes with a soft drink.

Lastly, you can collect 1 of 3 different Snow Miku calendars, and a silicone watch, from crane games as prices! Try your luck!

There will also be a screening of the Magical Mirai 2017 concert at the Dinos Cinemas, but if the event is like last year, they wont plan to make the tickets available to overseas visitors. We’ll post updates if this changes.
