You need to get the international drive licence to drive in Japan.

And it is not a good idea for traveller to drive a car in Japan because it is tough to find the parking space in the city area.

It is not unusual to wait the parking area in the line for over thirty minutes.

I recommend the JR-pass to travel around Japan.

I recommend to make International Driving Permit. You will have plastic ID card, a leaflet with the translation into 29 languages(including Japanese) and a mobile application for Android and iOS. Read more on https://idaoffice.org/. Good luck!

I remember that once I posted the answer to Jackkie in last November.

After that (Dec/2017), Japanese Police office released new document which clearly described driving licence permission here.

Other useful links are provided here.
