Asia’s Game Changer, Japan Approves Casinos

Category: Tourism, Posted:17 Dec 2016 | 09:43 am

A massive shift in Asian gaming is expected on the heels of Japan’s parliament giving the green light to casinos this week.

For the hospitality sector, the market expectation is that hotels and upscale retail will be major beneficiaries.

In terms of locations, Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama have been widely named as key locations.

No doubt the news will cause concern in other gaming markets in Asia such as Macau and most certainly the large-scale new gaming districts in Metro Manila.
