Yoichi's Bow

The bow's name refers to Yoichi Nasu from The Tale of the Heike. In the tale, he shoots down a small fan far away on the roiling sea because his commander tells him to. Yoichi was thereafter viewed as one of the greatest archers in Japan, respected by both sides in the war that is the central point of the Tale.
与一の弓 / よいちのゆみ [yoichi no yumi] or 'Yoichi's Bow' in Japanese.
