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, Nike Zoom Structure 18 Mens Magnet Grey/Black/Hyper Crimson/Volt Running Shoes V62965,Men's Training Shoe Nike Metcon 2 819899-005Adidas Springblade Drive Womens Power Teal/Frost Mint/Neon Orange Running Shoes V69462,.

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.

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.
