Official Videos Show Off 2015 Snow Miku Concert & Exhibit


Over the past week, attendees to the Sapporo Snow Festival have been able to check out a variety of snow sculptures, which included everything from tanks, to a gigantic replica of Star Wars’s Darth Vader. The big highlight for many, though, has been the annual Snow Miku exhibit.

Crypton Future Media partnered with the event once again to erect a snow statue of digital diva Hatsune Miku in Sapporo’s Odori Park. In addition to the sculpture, though, the company set up numerous displays at the park, in addition to a Sky Town exhibit at Chitose Airport.

On top of this, two special Hatsune Miku concerts were held on February 7th and 8th, which featured the virtual idol in full Snow Miku attire.

While we’ve had countless photos, videos, and even fan art revolving around the display, it’s still a bit of a buzz kill for many that aren’t able to attend the event.

Not to worry! This year, the official Hatsune Miku YouTube channel has fans covered with a pair of videos.

The first is a four-minute tour through the Odori Park exhibit. In addition to footage of the snow statue, fans get a look at the pop-up exhibit and the merchandise booth.

The second video contains one of the encore songs from the February 7 show. It gives viewers a glimpse of the crowd before Miku kicks into Snow Fairy Story, Crypton’s anthem for the event.
