OSAKA -- The city of Osaka will construct a ship terminal on an artificial island by around 2024, making it easier to reach a casino slated to open there.

To be built on the harbor island of Yumeshima as a first step toward the casino resort, the terminal will accommodate vessels as large as 1,000-passenger cruise ships. The plans were revealed Friday.
