Joji Kokuryo provides tour of Japan IR candidates [Podcast]

Japan IR candidates

Joji Kokuryo, managing partner of Bay City Ventures, speaks with Michael Penn, the executive editor of AGB Nippon, about the candidate locations to host an IR in Japan. This includes the four confirmed candidates (Yokohama, Osaka, Nagasaki, and Wakayama), as well as several others that Kokuryo reckons could become late entries.

Few people have watched the Japan IR race development more carefully, and with greater insight, than Kokuryo, who has the advantages of both deep experience in the gaming industry and an independent perspective.
