Tokyo 2.0 (Just in Case)

Source: Wikipedia

After the March 2011 earthquake, Japan thinks that they need to build a backup Tokyo. In the event of a natural disaster that cripples Japan’s capital, the government and 50,000 residents will evacuate to a standby city about 300 west of Tokyo. Apparently the backup city, affectionately known as IRTBBC (Integrated Resort, Tourism, Business and Backup City) will not only have government facilities but also office complexes, resorts, casinos, and parks. To top it all off, the city is also to include a 652 meter tower. My question is, do you really need casinos and resorts in your backup city, especially if it’s built for only 50,000 of Tokyo’s 13 million residents?
