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 Foamposite Pro Low Game Royal / Black Shoes,Men's - Nike SB Vulc Rod Jade Stone / White Shoes,Men's - Nike Air Force 1 '07 White / Black Shoes,.

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.
