Is there a tool for polygon rotation in JOSM? It could be nice if there is such an option, but I can't find it. Now if I want to rotate an area I have to manually re-adjust each node, and this is not an easy task for something with 10+ nodes...

Make sure you're in "select" mode (the topmost mode button), then select the way. Look at the message in the bottom right corner, it says: "Shift-Ctr to rotate selected". While holding Shift and Ctrl, Drag one corner of your polygon and it will rotate around its centre.
