Yoshifumi Kato, president and CEO of Keihan Holdings, who announced last year that it was “his greatest mission” to connect by railway the anticipated IR at Yumeshima, Osaka, with Japan’s ancient capital of Kyoto, is seeing his vision come nearer reality, according to a recent article in the Nihon Keizai Shinbun.
Many of Macau’s casinos are in a race against time to ensure their newly-equipped VIP smoking lounges have been approved by the authorities.
In a Tokyo interview with Bloomberg television, Melco Resorts & Entertainment Chairman & CEO Lawrence Ho said of his IR license hunt that “the opportunity for Melco is priceless and we will do whatever we need to do to win.”
Osaka Mayor Hirofumi Yoshimura says that the newly developed Yumeshima will need not only rail links, but also high-speed ferry services and wider bridges in order to meet the traffic needs of the future, and that all of this should be completed by FY2024.
MGM Resorts has opened a major art exhibition by the well-known Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama at its Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art in Las Vegas.
