A woman with a love of loud music was arrested on Monday for playing her favourite tunes almost 24 hours a day. Resulting in her neighbour suffering from insomnia and headaches.
This all day music wasn’t an every now and again occurrence either, as 58-year-old Miyoko Kawahara is said to have kept up her bangin’ barrage from November 2002 right up to March of this year. And probably the police would still be none the wiser but for Kawahara’s 64-year-old neighbour needing a month of medical treatment due to her music induced maladies.
Yet despite her neighbour’s suffering, playing loud music throughout the day and night still wasn’t enough for Kawahara-san. As even though their houses were a mere 6 metres apart, she took the trouble of making a hole in her back door to allow the music to be heard even more.
Ms Kawahara has refused to disclose any possible motives, but it turns out (perhaps not surprisingly) that she has had trouble with her neighbours over noise related issues for the last nine years.
