In the most telling turn of events so far for Japan to get casinos, Tokyo Governor Naoki Inose said he will build a casino in the capital’s waterfronts district which is known as a tourist hotspot, even though currently casinos are illegal in Japan.
“I expect the Government to revise the law as soon as possible,” he said at the metropolitan assembly session.
As the incoming Governor, Inose said a casino could serve as a sightseeing facility and a place for social interaction among adults.
“To boost the number of foreign visitors to Tokyo, I will consider preparing an integrated resort facility that combines restaurants, theaters and casinos,” he said.
The latest remarks that the Japanese Government will soon path the way for Casino’s came as the new Governor was discussing Japan’s bid to host the 2020 Olympic Games.
