These NARUKO 鳴子 with different design are also used for other regional dances in Japan.
The "Yosakoi Naruko Odori" dance parade of Kochi in Shikoku every August is especially famous for these clappers. They are old instruments of farmers to scare away birds from the fields. They are black and have yellow sticks to beat the plate.
There is also a famous "Yosakoi Naruko Dancing" song from Takemasa Eisaku.


Farmers in other regions of Japan also used naruko to scare away animals from the harvest.
