The Japanese casinos and gaming industry faced a marginal growth period after emerging out of the global economic meltdown phase. Sports betting and related is the largest segment of the casinos & gaming sector in Japan and gambling is already a yearly $322 billion industry in Japan where bicycle, motorboat, motorcycle, and horse racing are big draws. So, too, are pachinko machines, a uniquely Japanese hybrid of slot and pinball machines. Until now, many lawmakers ignored the huge pachinko industry and talked about keeping Japan free of the evils of gambling, which they fear will quickly be exploited by organized crime.

Till date there is no casino in Japan. The Japanese government is moving toward opening the country to casino gambling for the first time, driven by American gambling interests, the success of other Asian casino centers and a search for new growth industries to end the long economic slump. In a rare sign of cooperation amid the country's fractious politics, a group of 150 lawmakers from the ruling party and five opposition parties have embraced legislation that could begin the process of legalizing gambling within two years. Leaders of the group say they plan to submit the bill before the current parliamentary session is scheduled to end in June.

Passage would pave the way for casinos in the world's third-largest economy within five years, according to some estimates. Regional governments are already jockeying in anticipation of a change. Okinawa, Osaka and Chiba prefectures have carved out a portion of their budgets to study potential casino-building plans.
