There are now two major standout events every year for Hatsune Miku fans to look forward to: Magical Mirai and Snow Miku. While Magical Mirai is enjoyed in a very specific location that may change from year to year, Snow Miku has been celebrated all over the city of Sapporo since her adoption as a Snow Festival mascot in 2010, and has even spread to neighboring cites!
Last year we only had a brief stay, and didn’t enjoy everything Snow Miku had to offer. But this year, we had the chance to explore all events and locations. They even included a stamp ralley event so you can mark the locations you’ve visited. Here’s our photo report of the event!
Many of the small cafes and restaurants partner up with Snow Miku to serve unique food dishes. You could find dishes of all kinds: Drinks, pasta, curry, pancakes, all of which were delicious! My favorite had to be the curry and naan bread from the restaurant found inside the Sapporo Factory Atrium.
Snow Miku Sky Town
The Snow Miku Sky Town shop is established as a permanent store inside the New Chitose airport. You’ll find many collaboration goods, a life sized statue, a small Snow Miku museum display, and an Animate! store just around the corner with even more goods! These locations are likely where you’ll get your first few stamps when you arrive in Sapporo.
