I didn't know much about Japan, so I decided to educated myself with this video:-

Five mins later and I have my own set of expert opinions:-

1. Smart buses, but funny writing
2. Nice hills, but too many trees to see them properly
3. Grey seems to be the preferred colour for concrete and lamina alike, which makes the buildings look simultaneously drab and shabby imo
4. Complete failure to understand how practical and attractive a proper sidewalk is. Instead of employing a change of level to divide pedestrians and buildings from the road surface, their sidewalks look like spilled over bits of tarmac, which occasionally have an isolated kerb that sticks up out of the ground. The intention of these seem clear enough: pedestrians trip over them and fall into the path of oncoming vehicles.

How to do countryside properly:-
