SNOW MIKU (HATSUNE MIKU) Snow Parade Ver. 

What is "SNOW MIKU"? https://snowmiku.com/2020
"SNOW MIKU" is the character who enlivens the wintery Hokkaido. The design is based on "a pure white snow sculpture of 'Hatsune Miku,'" that was created for "Sapporo Snow Festival 2010." Since then, a "SNOW MIKU" festival using "SNOW MIKU" as a main character has been held in Hokkaido every year. The costume design for "SNOW MIKU" is selected in an online competition on different themes every year, and the theme of the 2020 competition is a "Music instrument evocative of Hokkaido snow." "SNOW MIKU" will liven up Hokkaido this winter, together with all of you creators, as it has done for several years!
