A yumi is a type of bow used by samurai. When unidentified, it is a long bow. You should not bash monsters with it, or throw it—instead, wield it in your hands, then throw arrows (or fire them from your quiver).

For non-samurai, a yumi is basically the same as a regular bow. Samurai, however, get the following bonuses:

  • +1 to-hit bonus when using a yumi (in addition to their normal bow bonus)[1]
  • +1 multishot bonus when firing ya from a yumi[2]
  • +1 damage bonus when firing ya from a yumi[3]

Encyclopedia entry[]

The samurai is highly trained with a special type of bow,
the yumi. Like the ya, the yumi is made of bamboo. With
the yumi-ya, the bow and arrow, the samurai is an extremely
accurate and deadly warrior.
