Dear Adam,  This photo is a water-filled bamboo tube which clacks against a stone when emptied; device for scaring birds from gardens . The water device as a souzu is a device producing sound by waterpower automatically. It establishes the fulcrum in the vicinity of the center and pours water to the bamboo tube which threw one end open. If water becomes full, a bamboo tube inclines with the heaviness, and water spills, and the inside empties. And when a bamboo tube returns to an original degree of leaning, it knocks on the support stand (stones) and produces sound. It came to enjoy the sound as elegance later and became often installed as decoration of the Japanese garden. Greetings from Kyoto, Yuichi

Thanks for the great description of the principles of operation of this device. I think that this is the normal water intake. Thanks for bringing me more information about Japanese culture and tradition. I was pleased to meet a photographer for Panoramio, who would so wonderfully described his pictures. Best wishes from Białobrzegi (Poland) - Adam.
