Chinese money is pouring into Hokkaido at a much greater scale than imagined. In his recent visit to the island prefecture, Nike Free 5.0 2014 Men's Running Shoe Purple Blue Z8639,Men Jordan Air Spike Forty PE'Basketball Shoes' Game Royal/Total Orange/White/Black Model UK0903,Nike Free 5.0 Mens Grey Blue Running Shoes Z8680,, but a Chinese diplomatic source said he was just using the meeting as an excuse for touring the island.

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 Max 90 Honeycomb Mens USA Flag Black White Z9598,Men Jordan Air Deluxe'Basketball Shoes' Black/Blue Lagoon/Bright Concord/White Model UK0916,Nike Air Max 95 Mens Trainers White Black Yellow Z9687,.

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.

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.
