Yazutsu (lit. the “[Japanese] Arrow Barrel”) is a type of arrow quiver used in kyūdō, Japanese archery, using the Japanese longbow, the Yumi. As kyūdō ya (arrows) are quite long, the yazutsu is quite long compared to quivers from other styles of archery. They are often decorated with cord. In kyūdō the yazutsu is generally just used to carry the arrows to the dōjō. Once in the dōjō, they are held in the hand or placed on the ground for actual nocking and shooting. (From Wikipedia)
