The penetration of Chinese money into Hokkaido has been progressing quietly but steadily.

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, Womens Shoes ALDO Newbrook Red,Ellesse Navona Full Logo Flip Flop CP3836Womens Boots Anne Klein Talasi Black Leather,.
