TOKYO, Dec 15 (Reuters) - Japan's parliament passed a law on Thursday to legalise casinos, ending 15 years of political argument.

Backers of the bill, which allows for large-scale projects that combine casinos with hotels, shopping and conference space, see casinos as a way to significantly boost to tourism in Japan.
