Could a Tokyo Casino Hotel resort complex be coming to Japan. Many think the odds are now in favour!
Earlier this year, many believed that the idea of land-based casinos in Japan was all but dead due to a strong disagreement between two of the parties in Japanese parliament, otherwise known as the Diet.
In recent elections, Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) was able to secure an outright majority of the Diet for the first time since 1989. The party no longer requires its previous coalition partner, the Buddhist-backed party Komeito, who has been adamant about prohibiting gambling in the country due to social concerns.
