also you got to remember that asian armies usually include logistic as part of the total troop count.

Imjin war landings happened in waves where as the Spanish attempted a crossing in one move. The Spaniards probably would have won the war if they were in a position to do this.
The Japanese landed at least 15,000 men in Korea on April 13th-14th, which is around half of the number that the Spanish planned to use to cross the Channel. Overall, the Japanese used well over 200,000 troops in the war (and that lasted a lot less than 30 years...) - so yes, although it did happen in waves, they were very large waves that were comparable to the size of the entire armies of Europe.

Not if logistic support wasn't armed and part of the military. In Chinese accounts at least, they are mentioned wholly separate.

Toward end of the 16th century, it'll be about 0.5 Liang per dan for grain, while quickly increased to 1 Liang per dan in mid 17th.
