Chinese money is pouring into Hokkaido at a much greater scale than imagined.

The penetration of Chinese money into Hokkaido has been progressing quietly but steadily. Nike Free Run+ 3 Men's Running Shoe Red Orange Z8841,Men Converse Aerojam'Basketball Shoes' Smoke Pearl/Frost Grey/Red Model UK0632,Mens Nike Dunk SB Low Shoes Grey Yellow Red Blue Z9219,, 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, Mens Nike Dunk SB High Shoes "Bear" White Grey Orange Z9165,Men ASICS Tiger GEL-Kayano Trainer Evo'Running Shoes' Blue/Black Model UK0616,Nike Air Max 1 Mens Trainers "Gorge Green" Z9378,.

Chinese investments are particularly active along the Pacific coast of Hokkaido, especially in the cities of Tomakomai and Kushiro, both equipped with port facilities.

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.
