Chinese money is pouring into Hokkaido at a much greater scale than imagined. In his recent visit to the island prefecture, Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 Womens Pure Platinum/Dark Grey/Black Running Shoes V69860,Nike Roshe One Girls Toddler Pink Blast/White Running Shoes V68901Nike Flex Fury 2 Womens Fierce Purple/Black/White/Bright Crimson Running Shoes V53366,, but a Chinese diplomatic source said he was just using the meeting as an excuse for touring the island.

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, Women's Nike Acorra Suede Dark Storm/Black/Gum Light Brown/Sail UK#N5-9541,Nike Roshe One Boys Preschool Black/Cool Grey Running Shoes V15195The North Face Jester Backpack CP93,.

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. adidas Originals Womens Adilette Slide Sandal CP5204,Adidas D Lillard 2.0 Mens Gold/Dark Grey/Green Glow Basketball Shoes V56135Womens Shoes adidas A.T. 360.2 Prima Clear Onix/Super Pop Pink,.
