I'm not from there but is there a way that she can get a translator to further understand the situation?
When is she due? Is there time to change hospitals?
My DH is Japanese, and I gave birth in Japan in 2007 at a "birth center" in Yokohama. The midwives there were very supportive of bf-ing, my daughter slept in the same room with me, and at no time was she supplemented.
There is a huge network of birth centers all over Japan. I found one near my home by googling (in Japanese -- sister-in-law helped!). A local city hall office should also have a list of such centers.
Let me know if you need any other info.
