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

Nike Air Max KPU Mens All Black Sneakers 3127099,Shop New Balance Ml850 - Trainers - Navy N65d5767Nike Air Max 24 7 Mens Gray Green Sneakers 3127114,, 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, Nike Air Max 90 Premium EM Mens Gray Black Sneakers 3127227,Where To Buy New Balance Wrt300 - Trainers - Blue U98i3361Nike Air Max 95 Dym Fw Mens Green Black Sneakers 3127289,.

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.

Resort facilities in Tomamu and Sahoro are well-known as instances of investments in Hokkaido by Chinese. The Tomamu resort was suddenly bought up by a Shanghai company 15 years ago and what used to look like a ghost town has developed a completely different face.

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.
