Real-world information

Real life image of a deer scare.

Shishi-odoshi (鹿威し?) is a Japanese device, which includes a water fountain and a tube often made of bamboo that has its heavier side on the rocks. The tube is gradually filled up with the water from the fountain, which changed the tube's center of gravity and tips the tube down towards the fountain to dump the water. The tube then hits the rock again, creating a loud noise, and the cycle repeats. Though the shishi-odoshi was meant to fend off animals known to threaten agriculture in the country, including deer and boars, its use nowadays is often a decoration for gardens. More information on this topic is available at Wikipedia.
