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

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, Women's Nike Orive Lite Black/Cool Grey/White/Black UK#N5-9615,Nike Roshe One Boys Toddler Wolf Grey/Cool Grey/White Running Shoes V97219Women's Nike Air Zoom Elite 8 Black/Sail/Ghost Green/Voltage Green UK#N5-8891,.

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.
