You know, a normal, companionable, 27-year-old friend. But don't forget to be original! On the one hand, close friendships with Japanese people are extremely rewarding and almost always last a lifetime, but on the other hand, getting to that point can quite frankly be a pain in the ass. They can also be hard to spell.
Their egos are incredibly fragile, and if you accidently upset them, rather than tell you where you screwed up, they'll just distance themselves from you. Listening on a long walk. The homogeneous nature of Japanese society certainly is the primary culprit. Lets stare at our cell phone, no need to interact with others, its mendokusai.
