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, Billabong / Baja Flip Flops / Multi,Men Nike Air Max CB2'94'Basketball Shoes' Black/Pure Purple/White Model UK1945,Body Glove / Men's Sandals / Turquoise,.

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.
