NAGASAKI – Nagasaki Prefecture has finalized an outline of the casino-featuring integrated resort it hopes to build at the Huis Ten Bosch theme park (in Sasebo City). The plan focuses on health tourism, which will offer visitors both healthcare and convalescence services at onsen spa facilities. With an eye to submitting an application to the central government in April, the prefecture aims to present an outline of the IR to the prefectural assembly soon, iron out differences, and gain approval of the plan in March.
