Ever since I got to Japan, I've noticed large bottles of water seemingly on display outside various people's homes. I had gotten used to it, but after seeing this house which takes this practice to the extreme, I had to find out what it was about.
I asked my host mother and she told me that people who don't want dogs and cats peeing on their walls setup these bottles because the way they reflect light is thought to scare animals, discouraging them from peeing. She also said that in her opinion, the bottles are more of an eyesore than some urine and I would have to agree.
