Japan can't really deal with mass cannons that efficiently so you might as well go for 1000w/1000c, lately I got 6 falcs in total from that pretty quickly, which is quite a force. Of course then make some goons to counter nagi, skirms vs yabusame, musk/cuirs for meatshield and a culv vs flaming arrows.
train flaming arrows should be better imo.
2 falconet>2 flaming arrow, but 4 falconet<5 flaming arrow. flaming arrows has 2 more range, better LOS, better move speed, can show some hit and run.
They are bad against almost everything, except for artillery and perhaps cavalry, naturally, so if Jap is making them I feel it's a win in itself.
That's why I said you should train a culverin or two as well, as they deal with flaming arrows really effectively. Also once you built your artillery foundry it's easy to mix them up into your army.
