I'm not necessarily doubting Mr Izumi's statement, but he should definitely get a video camera and record how close they come to his house, as well as the ensuing vibration. Encourage others to do the same, and upload it all to Youtube or somewhere similar. Then there'll be proof instead of words.

Remember this is about close friends, not just light workplace friendships. Could you have a close platonic relationship with a member of the opposite sex?
