A “deer chaser,” also known as a “Shishi odoshi,” is a bamboo Japanese water fountain with an upright hollow pivoting arm attached to a water source that when the arm gets full it tips over creating a sharp unique sound. They were originally designed to scare deer away from a garden but are now also used as a garden ornament that adds a heartbeat to ones garden.

I recorded this in an authentic Japanese garden, I allowed it to strike two times so that you get the right amount of silence in-between that it takes for it to fill up before it strikes again.

    This is perfect, thank you! I plan to use this in a relaxation tape themed lo-fi hip hop track.

    Thank you for making this recording available. I have used it as part of the sound montage behind an arrangement of the Ainu tonkori piece Ikeresotte, an apotropeic piece to frighten off unseen monsters
