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 Shoes Nike Match Supreme White/Metallic Silver/White/Black,Womens Boots COACH Ruth Black LeatherWomens Shoes Nike Air Pegasus '83 Grey Mist/Black/White,.
