Country is returning to normal following the Covid-19 pandemic, with pachinko halls set to reopen from today.

Japan.- The state of emergency due to the Covid-19 pandemic is to be lifted in the remaining prefectures, including the country’s capital Tokyo.

As of today (May 25), the Japanese government has lifted the state of emergency with the spread of the virus said to be under control.

It was first declared on April 7 but has already been lifted in certain prefectures in recent weeks.

The easing of restrictions will allow the country’s pachinko halls to fully reopen under new safety measures.

It will also be a boost to the country’s plans to issue three licences to build integrated resorts for the very first time.
