Where should an American expat go to meet people in Japan?

A friend of mine, arguably a workaholic, is an American residing in Japan for the next year or so. He has lived there for almost a year and he's having trouble meeting new people and striking friendship.
He recently had relationship woes and I'm worried about his lack of social support over there. He knows almost no Japanese and he's somewhat introverted as well.
I do not know his exact location except that he's about 40 minutes away from Tokyo by public transportation.
Given those is there any suggestion on what he can do?
Thank you in advance for any advice.
