Political Party

Campaign Pledge

Liberal Democratic Party

We will create “Japanese-style integrated resorts (IR)” that are safe and attractive for both children and adults by taking carefully thought-out measures based on the IR promotion act to address various concerns.


We will properly promote IRs based on the world-class casino regulations stipulated in the IR promotion act.

Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan

We will abolish the casino law.

Democratic Party For the People

The problems related to the IR promotion act have not been resolved. We are against the process of prefectures and government-designated cities that want to host IR facilities compiling IR development plans with IR operators for the government’s selection.

Japanese Communist Party

We will put an end to the IR and MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions) plans intended to host casino.

Social Democratic Party

We are against hosting casinos (IR) because it could lead to an increase in gambling addiction and destroy regional economies.

* Democratic Party For the People includes its IR-related pledge in a policy collection attached to its campaign pledges; Nippon Ishin (Japan Innovation Party) does not refer to IRs in its campaign pledges
