With the Government of Japan having given the green light for casino styled gambling, there is a strategy being put in place for the way that casinos will be regulated and licensed there, but the very first thing that does need to be decided is just where the first set of casinos will be built.
That is probably going to be quite a time consuming task, and with that in mind the Tokyo Metropolitan Government have chosen to contract the services of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu LLC, to set about compiling an interim report as to just which of the possible sites are going to be best suited for a casino resort to be built.
Whilst any permitted development of a brand new and the very first land based casinos in Japan isn’t expected to be ready to open until the year 2026, there is a lot at stake for each of the different locations that could be chosen.
As it stands, there are three current places that look the most likely to be chosen as the ones that land based casinos are to be built, and they are Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama.
It has been decided that initially three casino resorts will be built, and moving forward more licenses will be issued for additional ones, and it will be the result of the report completed by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu LLC that is going to be used as the basis for just which locations should be the ones chosen initially.
It may come as a surprise to learn that land based casinos have never been available in Japan, however, with the income generated and the taxable income expected to be huge, one can see why the Japanese Government have taken a much more liberal view to gambling and casino styled gambling in particular recently.
