Japan Open Poker Tour

The Japan Open was created in 2011, and its name was changed to Japan Poker Tour (JPT) in 2014.

Since gambling (such as playing poker for real money) is illegal in Japan, the Japan Open Poker Tour has distinctive rules and prize payouts: the final prizes are packages to Asian Poker Events that include buy-ins, hotel accommodation and transportation expenses.

Since the Japan Open Poker Tour organization is sponsored by PokerStars, those events include Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP, held in Macau City of Dreams), Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT), and Macau Poker Cup (MPC).

The 2014 Season 1 Osaka Tour and Tokyo Tour had 18,000 poker players registered.
