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. Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Womens White/Wolf Grey/Metallic Silver/White Running Shoes V96721,NIKE TIEMPO LEGEND V White/Soar/VoltNike Air Max Thea Womens White/Black/White Running Shoes V89021,, 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 Flyknit Lunar 3 Womens Volt/Bright Crimson/Bright Mango/Black Running Shoes V85942,NIKE SB STEFAN JANOSKI MAX Black/Wolf Grey/Flash Lime/Wolf GreyNike Juvenate Womens Purple Dusk/White/Mulberry Running Shoes V70529,.

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.

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.
