Design ideas:

Winding garden path- use the Japanese stepping stones to create a random winding path through a covered rose walkway, or sunk into the garden lawn.  Allow the grass to just cover the edges and rotate the stones to create a random appearance.

Dry garden borders- the stepping stones can be set randomly within a gravel border, mixed up with pebbles and cobbles.  Use planting that does not require regular watering such as cactus and various grasses.

Japanese garden- use the irregular stepping stones set within decorative aggregates and ornamental planting.  Ideal for a crossing through a decorative pond, raise out of the water so that only the surface edges are visible.
