TOKYO (Reuters) - Tokyo Governor Yoichi Masuzoe plans to submit his resignation as early as Wednesday morning after coming under fire for inappropriate use of tax money, public broadcaster NHK said.

Masuzoe would become the second governor to quit since 2013 when Tokyo won the rights to host the 2020 Summer Olympics.
