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, Men's - Nike Air Force 1 '07 White / Chlorine Blue-Mid Navy Shoes,Men's - Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Medium Mint / Gym Red-White Shoes,Men's - Nike Air Flight Showup White / White-Metallic Silver Shoes,.

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

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.
