Tokyo Considers Legalizing Noisy Kids→


After years of relative silence in suburban Tokyo, children may soon be free to make some noise.
According to a noise pollution ordinance enacted 15 years ago in the outskirts of the Japanese capital, no person can make noise in excess of 45 decibels, which is about the volume of a bird whistle.But there’s a proposal on the table to exclude children’s voices from regulation, and some wards hope to even extend the exception to local teenagers.
