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, Womens Boots ALDO Yvesa Black Leather,Kappa Allen Track Top CP3576Womens Sandals ALDO Braudia Gold,.

China’s penetration is more clearly visible in the town of Shiranuka, which lies next door to Kushiro.
