The government on Thursday presented ruling lawmakers with a plan to limit the number of times people can enter casinos to around 10 visits per month.

The plan is part of measures to prevent gambling addiction, but it has already met with opposition from lawmakers of the Liberal Democratic Party, led by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with some saying the envisioned restriction is too strict.

Amid differences of opinions between the government and the ruling coalition of the LDP and Komeito, both sides will continue negotiations.
