The penetration of Chinese money into Hokkaido has been progressing quietly but steadily. adidas Originals Junior ZX Flux Trainer CP564,Adidas Crazy 8 Mens White Basketball Shoes V86167Nike Junior Air Max 90 Leather Trainer CP656,, 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, Timberland Junior Earthkeepers 2.0 6 Inch Boot CP690,Adidas D Lillard 1 Mens Brown Oxide/Scarlet/Raw Ochre Basketball Shoes V43104Flossy Nursery Plimsole CP765,.
