Historical Description Edit
When the samurai class first arose, their quintessential weapon was not the katana, but the yumi bow. The yumi is distinctive for its height and asymmetry. It is considered the world's longest bow and stand much taller than its wielder. Unlike most bows where the arrow is notched in the middle, the yumi's is on the lower third of the bow. The exact purpose of this unusual construction is not certain. One theory is that the short lower limb allows it to be used while mounted, as the early samurai did.
