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, Air Force LOW-0402,VANS / SPORTY REALM BP BLACK SKATE STACK VA2XA3O27Nike Free45-0856,.

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