Kyudo is a technology in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties that is unique to the Japanese and can be researched at the Monastery once the Fortress Age is reached. Once researched, it increases the minimum hit points needed by the Sohei Archer's Divine Strike ability to instantly kill the enemy by 50%.


With Kyudo, the Sohei Archer can instantly kill any enemy whose hit points is less than 219 in the Imperial Age with the Divine Strike.
