The railway cars in the city of Sapporo in Hokkaido will again sport images of Hatsune Miku during the winter season. The Yuki Miku Densha (Snow Miku Trains) will run from December 19 through March 30. This is the second year the trains will feature the Vocaloid character.
The outside of the train cars will feature illustrations wrapped around the entire car of "Yuki Miku" holding "Morris," the mascot of Mount Moiwa, a popular tourist destination in Sapporo. The inside of the cars will feature advertisements for Mount Moiwa and illustrations of Yuki Miku.
In addition, Saki Fujita, the voice actress who provided the voice samples for Hatsune Miku, will voice the broadcasting announcements inside the railway cars.
Weekly ASCII Magazine is hosting images of last year's trains.
