Japan asks U.S. to curb aircraft noise

Date Posted: 2009-07-16

Complaints from Okinawa residents about excessive aircraft noise in communities adjacent to American military bases are being heard, and the Japanese government has asked the U.S. military to tone it down.

Sumio Tarui, the government’s Ambassador for Okinawa Affairs, has reassured Okinawa’s governor the central government is aware of the problems not only here, but in mainland Japan. He told Hirokazu Nakaima the government’s been pressing for noise reduction measures since March 2007.

The ambassador explained to the governor there’s little that can be done to lower the noise levels and settle the noise issue while U.S. military aircraft from outside Okinawa are conducting training here. He says Japan’s government is pressing hard to have the United States improve the noise situation.
