HI,
I think it is best if he makes a visit at least once a year home. It will put things in perspective and make him adjust much better. But, I have lived off and on and each time I spent over 6 months I had reverse culture shock when I came home, but an elated feeling too. It is also important to have friends from one'e own country. If language aquisition is the goal he may want to isolate himself, but that is not healthy IMO. You need to speak your native language to other native speakers. It allows you to let it all hang out. One excellent aspect of Japan is that the women are very kind, and I had many friends that supported me when it counted. I did make two very good male friends, but they are harder to get close too. I am the kind of person that would rather have a few great friends than many aquiantances though. It is strange that the better my language became the less I seemed to understand of the culture. Hope it all works out for him. BTW, I don't think any ssri's are available in Japan, and my lithobid was not either. take care.
johnj
