Mohegan Gaming is in the run to develop an IR in Japan with the opening of its new office on Wednesday.
Japan.- The US regional casino operator plans to use the office both as a home base for its Japanese team; and also as a showroom for Hokkaido residents to learn about IRs.
“At the Tomakomai Office, we plan to install not only the Mohegan company profile but also a book that summarizes Mohegan’s corporate philosophy and CSR and an IR vision book,” the company said.
Moreover, the operator recently revealed the first details of its Hokkaido IR concept named INSPIRE Entertainment Resort Hokkaido; and cost between €3,2 billion and €4,1 billion to build.
The INSPIRE name follows the theme adopted on Mohegan’s other international developments; INSPIRE Korea, in Incheon, and INSPIRE Athens, a proposed IR concept in Greece.
The Hokkaido IR would also include a unique museum celebrating both these cultures; the Mohegan Tribe in Connecticut and the indigenous Ainu people of Japan.
Lastly, the IR is set to be located in a forested area of Tomakomai; which would offer various outdoor activities for guests such as horse riding and cross-country skiing.
