Hatsune Miku is once again lending her aid for safety awareness in the Hokkaido prefecture of Japan! In response to an increase in deadly motorcycle accidents, the Hokkaido Prefectural Police Traffic Department has adopted Hatsune Miku in a motorcyclist safety awareness campaign.
The theme for the Snow Miku 2022 design contest was “The Sea in the image of a Wintery Hokkaido“. Take a look at the finalists below, then go cast your vote! The chosen design will be featured in the upcoming Snow Miku 2022 in February next year.
The next Miku Expo inspired Fan Forge from For Fans By Fans is up and running, and accepting art entries from all over the world! Your artworks, if selected, could be used for shirts, wallets, backpacks, and other collectables.
The Snow Miku 2022 art contest has one more week to go before the entry deadline on April 19th, 2021 @ 5:00 PM JST, so if you haven’t completed and submitted your entry yet, then don’t delay any longer! Check out the contest entry details below if you want to get your entry in before the deadline.
A new Hatsune Miku animated series, as well as a webtoons and comics, are currently in the early stages of development. The news officially broke via an exclusive posted by Deadline, and was later confirmed by Graphic India, one of the partners in the series creation.
Starting at 0:19 into the commercial, Miku makes her surprise appearance with the text “北海度でつくる” (Made in Hokkaido). This brief 1 second scene features a clip taken from the MV for the Miku Expo 5th anniversary theme song “Lucky☆Orb“. This of course is a nod towards Crypton Future Media, which is based in Sapporo. The MV animator, Kasoku Sato, is based in Tokyo.
Most travel to Sapporo tends to be done through the much larger New Chitose airport, as it is capable of landing and takeoff of much larger aircraft. But residents of Hokkaido are familiar with Sapporo’s own airport, currently named Okadama Airport. There are plans to expand the airport to accommodate larger aircraft, which would allow more direct travel to the popular city. This plan for expansion also brought along the idea of renaming the airport to better represent the city.

Numbskull has both covered, with a Hatsune Miku Christmas ornament, and sets of enameled pins! And you can be assured they’re quality made, as my Miku plushie above was happy to show.
