Chinese money is pouring into Hokkaido at a much greater scale than imagined.

The penetration of Chinese money into Hokkaido has been progressing quietly but steadily. Women's Shoe Nike Air Max 90 Ultra LOTC (Shanghai) 847154-600,JORDAN SUPER.FLY 3 Black/Dark Grey/WhiteWomen's Shoe Nike Cortez Ultra BR 833801-800,, Chinese capital last year purchased more than 2,400 hectares of forestland and an estimated 4,000 hectares of land for solar power generation — together equivalent to the area encompassed by the Yamanote Line in Tokyo. No doubt, there are additional land purchases by Chinese money not reported to the government.
More ominous is the acquisition of farmland by Chinese capital. For example, Women's Shoe Nike Internationalist 629684-305,Men's Basketball Shoe Kobe XI 836183-084Women's Shoe Nike Zoom Fearless Flyknit 850426-101,.

China’s penetration is more clearly visible in the town of Shiranuka, which lies next door to Kushiro. High schools there have designated Chinese as a selective foreign language subject for second- and third-year students.

What China is doing in Hokkaido is far from constructing strategic bases in foreign lands as part of its “One Belt, One Road” initiative to connect it to Europe. But China’s intention of slowly penetrating Hokkaido over a long period of time is clear. Beijing’s ideal outcome is to create a situation in which people in Hokkaido cannot move forward without relying on China, the diplomatic source said.
