Oriental Land Co., operator of Tokyo Disney Resort, admitted Friday it has outsourced cleaning services since 1984 to a real estate company connected with rightists and formerly with the underworld, and said it will not renew the contract when it ends in August.

Oriental Land officials said the company has a contract with Chuo Kohatsu to clean its headquarters in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture.

Payments to the company reached roughly 100 million yen a year and about 2.2 billion yen over the past 20 years.
