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

Women's Shoe Nike Juvenate Premium 844973-601,Men's Golf Shoe Nike Air Zoom 90 IT 844569-001Women's Shoe Nike Roshe Cortez NM 833804-101,, 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 Flex Fury Boys Toddler Black/Volt/Flash Lime/White Running Shoes V30245,Men's Golf Shoe Nike Air Zoom 90 IT 844569-101Adidas Element Refine Boys Preschool Collegiate Royal/White/Black Running Shoes V46094,.

Chinese investments are particularly active along the Pacific coast of Hokkaido, especially in the cities of Tomakomai and Kushiro, both equipped with port facilities.

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.

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.
