Hi there, the biggest issue I have are my 2 cars in the USA. Is it possible that I ship the 2 cars from USA to Japan and drive them as usual? If not where can I keep these vehicles without spending hundreds a month on expensive storage services? Also how can I maintain a US address without paying any rent and is it necessary to maintain a US address?

How long are you planning to be there? If it's a long time, I would sell them. If not I would try to store them at a friend's or relative's. Definitely not worth the cost to ship them there.
You should keep an address to associate your U.S. credit cards and bank accounts. Do you have any friends or relatives you could use for an address? If not you could rent a post office or private postal box.
