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, Men's Shoe Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential 819474-010,Christian Louboutin Sale Women Coupon_550Men's Shoe Nike Air Trainer (Victor Cruz) 777535-001,.

China’s penetration is more clearly visible in the town of Shiranuka, which lies next door to Kushiro.

Resort facilities in Tomamu and Sahoro are well-known as instances of investments in Hokkaido by Chinese.
