A leading player in the global casino gaming industry, Casinos Austria confirmed that the Japanese unit of the company is in the process of forming a consortium seeking to operate a casino spa resort at Sasebo, built on land adjacent to the Huis Ten Bosch.

News of Casinos Austria’s interest came at the Kyushu Nagasaki Integrated Resort Business-Connect Seminar this week.

“[We do] not seek to build a location expressing the gaudiness of Las Vegas or Macau, but rather a European-style IR to suit a regional city with meetings incentives, conferences and exhibitions business as key,” said Akio Hayashi, MD of Casinos Austria International Japan.

Hayashi added that the casino spa would facilitate state-of-the-art medical treatments and have a philharmonic orchestra as a permanent feature. He also confirmed that the development would suit the city’s style and that they intend to work with Kengo Kuma, one of Japan’s top architects.
