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.

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, Adidas Messi 15.1 Fg Mens White/Prime Blue/Black Soccer Shoes V93327,Men's Shoe Nike Air Zoom Odyssey 2 844545-001Nike Air Max Sequent Mens Black/University Red/Cool Grey/Metallic Cool Grey Running Shoes V29244,.

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.
