"one of the world’s biggest untapped markets, worth tens of billions of dollars a year." The tens of billions of dollars are going to be from Japanese people, not tourists and this is going to cause more gambling addictions, debt, crime (including abuse/domestic violence) and ultimately unhappiness. Who the heck wants this, apart from those companies and businesses that will make profits? Why don't they try to focus on something that will actually raise the quality of peoples lives or do they really care?
