Really nice work! I'm actually living in Japan right now, and I don't think this would look out of place in the mountains near my apartment! I like the white walls a lot, the textures are awesome.

Compositionally, you probably don't want the car pointing out of frame like that. Might want to extend the picture to the right and add a bit more cliff, make it more wide-screen.
