Komeito, the junior coalition partner of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, plans to call for imposing an admission fee of at least ¥8,000 when Japan’s first casinos open, according to a report.

The proposal, designed to ensure Japan’s admission fees will be on a par with Singapore’s, is included in an interim report drafted by a Komeito team for a bill to introduce casinos as part of so-called integrated resorts in Japan. The government wants to charge ¥2,000 for admission.
