120 film
For practical purposes, all TLRs are film cameras, most often using 120 film, although there are many examples which used 620 film, 127 film, and 35 mm film. Few general-purpose digital TLR cameras exist, since the heyday of TLR cameras ended long before the era of digital cameras.

What kind of lens is a Yashica 35mm?

In design it is very similar to the Yashica D model, with the added feature of being able to shoot 35mm film as well as the medium format 120 film the model D was designed for.
