Abstract

Japanese law does not treat Pachinko as a form of gambling but rather as a leisure activity. Even though it is classified as a leisure activity, regulators still see a risk that Pachinko may stir up one's gambling spirit. Pachinko parlors are facing a reduction in number of visitors. Pachinko is becoming a popular investment for chain operators through domestic and foreign capital.
