Japanese Diet debate begins on casino bill despite split views in coalition

Tokyo Casino coming soon??

It's on! The Japanese parliament started to debate on the Japan Casino bill yesterday. It will see the launch of a Tokyo Casino Hotel resort that could be Asia's biggest gambling revenue generator!

 

The LDP is hoping to take the bill as far as it can before the end of the current extraordinary Diet session on Dec. 14. LDP Diet Affairs Committee Chairman Wataru Takeshita told a press conference Tuesday that the bill could clear the lower house next Tuesday.

 

But strong objections to the bill remain within Komeito. Yoshihisa Inoue, the party's secretary general, has said Japan should not depend on gambling in its pursuit of economic revitalization.
