Our Guarantee

Everything in our inventory, with the exception of our domestically made yumi, is handcrafted by the finest Japanese kyudo equipment manufacturers and master bowmakers at work today. All equipment is visually and physically tested before it is shipped to you and is guaranteed to arrive in perfect working condition. If you are not satisfied with the merchandise you receive you may return it in original condition within 10 days of purchase for exchange or store credit (see below). Refunds will be decreased or possibly denied if the equipment is soiled, damaged, or shows signs of wear or abuse.
Quality bamboo bows and arrows can be damaged beyond repair in a single shooting by inexperienced practitioners. Therefore, we cannot guarantee damage caused by the stringing of the bow or the shooting of the bow and arrows. Hemp strings should be used by experienced practitioners only and are not guaranteed against breakage. All iems are insured for shipping. Any damage caused by shipping is usually handled by the purchaser through the postal service or shipping company. When that is not the case the claim must be validated by the postal service or shipping company prior to filing a claim with Asahi America.
Our domestically made yumi are guaranteed against defect by the maker. Terms of this guarantee will be provided to you upon purchase of a domestic yumi.
Arrow fletching that is bent or curled in packing and shipping can be straightened again by lightly steaming the feathers and shaping them by hand.
