As part of the liberalization of the gambling industry in Japan, the local government must first select its business partners. Relevant proposals of local authorities with their business partners will be evaluated by the Government of Japan. In the first wave of liberalization in the market there will be no more than three licenses.

Nagoya is the capital of the province, as well as the largest city of Aichi. According to the law, settlements at the level of the governorate can apply for a license. Nagoya and Aichi can compete for licensing.

Aichi Prefecture is considering the possibility of finding a casino on an artificial island, where Chuba Centerayr International Airport is located.

The mayor of Nagoya will be elected in 2021, but the governor will be re-elected on February 3, 2019.
