There’s been a lot to cover in regards to Snow Miku 2020 news over the past couple weeks, so here’s what you need to catch up on if you’re planning to attend the event! There’s less than 2 weeks remaining until everything kicks off on February 4th, so most collaboration announcements should be finished by this point. Let’s get started!

The full PV for the Snow Miku 2020 theme song “Poka Poka Planet” is now available on YouTube! The music and artwork was composed and animated by Harumaki Gohan and his art studio. Expect to hear this song played throughout various Snow Miku celebrations in Sapporo!

The official Snow Miku 2020 album titled “Planet Traveler” has been sampled in a crossfade video, and will be available in physical at Snow Miku 2020 (for 2200 JPY), and other shops around Sapporo starting on January January 22nd. The album features 10 festive tracks by various producers, and definitely worth adding to your collection!


SNOW MIQUEST 2020 – Find The Missing Instrument!

If you remember the riddles and puzzles from Magical Mirai 2019 to enter Megurine Luka’s secret chamber, there will be another quest to solve at Snow Miku 2020! The “QLEAR QUEST” activity will be held at the Sapporo Factory Hall 2nd floor from the “QLEAR QUEST” booth on February 8th (Sat) and February 9th (Sun). You will have to complete a series of puzzles to “find the missing instruments, and Yukine who has also gone missing for some reason!”.

There is a 1500 Yen fee to begin the activity, and has a reward of a clear file handbag, as well as an acrylic keychain! You have until 6:00 PM on each day to finish and turn in your results for the prize. Keep in mind sharing the activity on social media is OK, but please do not give away the answers to the puzzles online!

The official website for Snow Miku 2020 has been updated with a new main visual artwork, a teaser for the theme song, accommodations, a DJ Live event, and the “Snow Miku Train” reveal and operation schedules. Check out the details below!

The main visual art for this year was drawn by Hanekoto, a highly popular light novel artist and character designer. Snow Miku just looks so charming and sweet with that marching band theme! This artwork, along with many future others, will be featured in various promotions during the Snow Miku event in Sapporo.



A 50 second teaser for the Snow Miku 2020 theme song, titled “Poka Poka no Hoshi” (Cozy Planet) has been uploaded to the official Hatsune Miku YouTube channel. The music and lyrics were written by none other than Harumaki Gohan, and sets a pleasant and light atmosphere.

A live DJ performance by Vocaloid creators will be held at Sound Lab Mole on Friday, February 7th. More info on this event will come later!


Official tour packages and accommodations will be opened to overseas visitors starting at 17:00 JST on October 31st. Package plans include hotel stays, Snow Miku 2020 Nendoroid and figma reservations, and tour-limited original goods. The English version of the Snow Miku 2020 website will be updated with a banner linking to the accommodations once they’ve opened.

Note: Due to a bug caused by poor website coding last year, many overseas fans missed out on accommodation reservations. To avoid this bug, we advise setting your device time to Japan time when attempting to reserve your accommodation.

The “Snow Miku Train” is making a return this year starting November 25th! The vehicle will be in operation daily from 7:00 AM ~ 6:00 PM until March 25th. As usual, expect it to be wrapped in the Nendoroid and figma designs, with promotional posters hung inside the train car.

An early public preview of the train will be available on November 24th from 10:30~14:00 at the Sapporo City Transportation Bureau Train Office (Sapporo City Chuo-ku South 21 West 16th Street). We’ll share the photos in a later article once they’re available!
