Driving in Japan

I practice driving by car in my city. I have already got my driving licence in Denmark. And I have already switched from my danish licence to the a japanese one. So I can drive legally in Japan legally. But there are many different surroundings for driving from Denmark. But there are many things, which are different from driving in Denmark.

1. Cars should run on the left side of the loads, like in England.
2. Many people including my family don't have a manual transmission car. I have to learn to drive an automatic transmission car.
3. Some roads are so narrow that I can barely run pass through them by my car.
4. Some loads don't have a cycleload and or a sidewalk. Pedestrians, cyclists and cars are on the same lane sometimes with leading to a kind of chaos.
5. Of course there are more pedestrians, cyclists and cars in Japan than in Denmark.

I need another sense of driving in Japan. Furthermore, my car is not my own. It is my father's car. He hates that when his car is scratched. He always checks the car, to see whether I scratched after I drived while I driving. It puts a lot of pressure on me to drive 100% safety and correctly. His car is his treasure. But I think cars are just for transportation.
