Great question! Japanese is more about ongoing processes instead of inert objects... They recognize the flow of stuff more so that's reflected in the language if you ask me. The main differences come down to the word sequence, the face shape / pronunciation, the writing style, and how words are combined to create new concepts. Word sequence is a huge chasm when we consider English grammar because there's no equivalent to "grammatical particles" in English but some training can really help one understand those intuitively. Just gotta lay a strong foundation.

I would like to add that Japanese is fundamentally a different way of seeing and talking about the world when compared with English. It's a culture of rank (social hierarchy) and a language of ambiguity or vagueness. 曖昧(あいまい)[ai-mai] or 漠然(ばくぜん)[baku-zen] mean Vague or Ambiguous, and Japanese has this quality in a pervasive sense.
