The people of Yamato are not noted for the sea-faring expertise, but Khitan-style junks have been in use for some time (as well as other, slow and cumbersome boats powered by sculling)...

For junks, you can probably get away with using the DW rules for cogs.

Example picture: the Taira vs the Minamoto at Mizushima, 1183 AD.

I may have got carried away...

IIRC, the Taira clan were the superior naval power of the day, although the Minamoto managed to defeat them at Dan-no-Ura in 1185.
(A defeat illustrated at the start of Usagi Yojimbo's "Grasscutter" story...)
