Myoko or Yuzawa Snowseason 2012 in Snow talk, trip reports, Japan avalanche & backcountry Posted June 16, 2011 re the car issue - I'm with the majority above - I can't see how a non-resident can register a car. There are a few long term car rental places around. They usually cater to residents and offer 1 year rentals. The going rate was Y30,000-Y40,000 per month. It would be an uphill battle to get one of these guys to rent a car to you as a tourist.
