All national dailies reported on an agreement reached on Tuesday between the LDP and Komeito Party on legislation on implementing “integrated resorts” (IR) featuring casinos. Under the bill, Japanese and foreign residents of Japan will be charged an admission fee of 6,000 yen to enter the facilities while foreign visitors will be allowed to enter free of charge. The two parties plan to submit the bill to the Diet later this month and the government hopes to enact it by the end of the current Diet session on June 20. The bill will also include a plan to build IR facilities in up to three locations and limit casino visits by Japanese residents to three times a week and ten times a month. Nikkei wrote that competition among local governments to host IR facilities will now begin.
