Nike Air Jordan 1 Black/Royal Blue Sneakers 3125720,Nike Motion Blur Magista Orden Firm Ground Men's WhiteNike Air Jordan 11 Transparent Shoes Box Black White Red Sneakers 3125844,, Chinese capital last year purchased more than 2,400 hectares of forestland and an estimated 4,000 hectares of land for solar power generation — together equivalent to the area encompassed by the Yamanote Line in Tokyo. 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 Air Jordan 12 White/Varsity Red Sneakers 3125908,Nike Radiation Flare Mercurial Victory V DF FG Men's GreenNike Air Jordan 13 Mens Flints-Blue/White Sneakers 3125960,.

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.

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.
