Traditionally, 3 small stones would be used at the base of the spout to support the vertical portion of the bamboo spout. See example at bottom of page. There are a myriad of other methods of anchoring these spouts.

Water features such as these, which can include a false bottom basin grate system can also be supported as shown in the picture at left.

Bamboo Shishi Ososhi (Water Hammer)

Water is a vital component in the Japanese Garden. The Shishi Odoshi or literally "Deer Scare" was originally used to startle the deer that fed upon the rice shoots in the rice paddies. The Water Hammer is now a common element in many Japanese gardens.

Upon entering, one takes a drink from the basin, symbolizing internal purification; washes the hands, symbolizing external purification. The sound of the clack of bamboo penetrates the garden and fades. We are reminded that time is moving on.

In time - depending upon the climatic or environmental conditions to which it is exposed - bamboo will naturally crack. There can be no guarantee against such cracking. Our bamboo pieces are made from Arundinaria amablis and Phallostachys pubescens (Moso) - the most select of the quality bamboos.

We recommend periodic sanding and recoating of the bamboo finish for longer lasting function of this product. Climate conditions will vary the finish durability. Four season climates have the greatest wear factor. For distinct 4 season climates we recommend removal from the pond during winter months.


Our new Shishi Odoshis are shorter and have a protective coating, a very sturdy plastic base with solid vertical supports, and include a pump.
