 Nihon Yoron Chosakai, a nationwide public opinion polling organization that is managed by Kyodo News and made up of its subscribers including the Kanagawa Shimbun, conducted a public opinion survey across the nation on June 13-14 to probe public attitudes on “tourism.” In the survey, respondents were asked whether they approve of installing casino facilities in Japan. In the breakdown of answers to this question, negative answers substantially outnumbered affirmative ones, with “no” accounting for a total of 65% and “yes” for a total of 30%. The political and business communities and local governments are seeking to legalize casinos as a measure for regional revitalization in tandem with tourist resorts. However, the survey results showed that many people are concerned that casino gambling would have a negative impact. (Abridged)
