The art of handling bow and arrows was mandatory to learn by each of the Japanese bushi (warriors) and was one of the most important until the emergence of firearms (tetupo). The usage of bow and arrows remained popular until the 17th century, but in this period, more towards the goal of spiritual improvement of the samurai. On the other hand, the shinobi warriors kept this weapon in practical use, because of it`s simple manufacturing process and the it`s ability to be used silently.
