Japanese Yew does not require pruning however it can be clipped or sheared as needed to form hedges or a columnar topiary. Cease pruning two months prior to the first frost date in your area. Heavy pruning should be done in late winter, before new growth begins to emerge in spring.
You can enter "holly image" and "Japanese Yew image" into any search engine to view photos.
