The penetration of Chinese money into Hokkaido has been progressing quietly but steadily. Men's - Native Miller Preschool Regatta Blue Shoes,Men's - Nike Benassi Solarsoft Slide Black / Total Crimson-Neon Lime ShoesMen's - Native Fitzsimmons Jiffy Black / Jellybean Purple Shoes,, 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, Men's - K Swiss Lundahl NT White / Black Shoes,Men's - Nike Barkley Posite Max Energy Fire ShoesMen's - Jordan Spiz'ike Preschool Cool Grey / Pink-Purple Earth-White Shoes,.

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

Resort facilities in Tomamu and Sahoro are well-known as instances of investments in Hokkaido by Chinese. The Tomamu resort was suddenly bought up by a Shanghai company 15 years ago and what used to look like a ghost town has developed a completely different face.

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.
