Sapporo’s winter princess Snow Miku will return in February, Crypton Future Media announced on Tuesday.
However, it seems that the Vocaloid pop star Hatsune Miku will definitely be there one way or another. While not all details are available yet, the Snow Miku website was full of new plans and announcements on Tuesday.

“I drew it with the feeling that it would be an illustration that would add glamor to the event, so I hope you enjoy it together with the event,” Necömi states on the Snow Miku website.
There will also be a Snow Miku Arts Festival, which will include an illustration contest for local students.
They also plan to have an Official Tour, which will feature the 2021 Nendoroid Snow Miku, and tour-exclusive goods.
Miku Train and More
The colorful, wrapped Hatsune Miku trolley will also return to the streets of Sapporo this winter.
The electric tram is part of the Sapporo Streetcar system. It includes onboard posters and special announcements by Hatsune Miku. (The details change from year to year).
The train will operate from Nov. 21 through March 24, 2021.
Hatsune Miku has been involved with the Sapporo Snow Festival since 2010, the first year that Crypton Future Media sponsored the event. They made a Hatsune Miku snow sculpture, and a Snow Miku festival has been held every year since then.
Crypton Future Media is headquartered in Sapporo, the largest city in Hokkaido.
