Te Whitepaper suggests that the authority granted to the Prime Minister under the Casino Promotion Law as the head of the Casino Control Committee be delegated to the Minister of Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism due to the fact that the main purpose of IR is to attract tourism


Horse Racing is supervised by Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, because the purpose of legalizing horse racing is to “improve and breed live stocks”, Motorcycle racing and bicycle racing are by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry because its purpose is to “for the improvement of machinery”


Te Casino Promotion Law states that a new national regulatory organ will be established for the purpose of regulation and observation, and contemplates to have a Casino Control Committee, which is to be established as an external organ of the Cabinet Headquarters.

And while there obviously are critics to this drastic change of approach, I personally think that this shows the Japanese government’s real willingness to “Get Tings Done” rather quickly,


as contemplated under the Casino Promotion Law. Tat is, it is unrealistic to formulate a new supervising body from scratch from now and have them operational rather quickly, so the idea of “Use What You Have Now” approach is practical if we want to move fast. And from the operator’s viewpoint, we now have general idea of who we are dealing with (MLITT) as opposed to a mysterious and currently non- existent organization, so we at least have a bright side


Last, but definitely not least, there is an issue on how to deal with problems associated with gambling. Te importance of addressing problem gambling is magnified by the fact that the Japanese general public is more concerned about the “problems” which the casino brings as opposed to its benefits.


● Tis is partially due to the fact that the focus of attack by the opposition was concentrated on


this point, and the fact that the manner in which
