To 'make friends' is an english idiom, so you cannot translate it directly into Japanese. "Dekiru" means more 'be completed' or 'be able,' anyway.

The Japanese equivalent, however, seems to be "nakayoku", so maybe: "Nihonjin no hito o nakayoku suru kyoomi ga arimasu".

Just because you whisper the final 'u' of "arimasu" doesn't mean it isn't there.

[Edit] Ah, looks like you're right... sorry. Google tells me you can do "tomodachi ni dekiru". I guess I should check before I open my mouth. Thanks for the idiom!! [/Edit]

Actually, a better way to say this would be:

"Nihonjin to tomodachi ni naritai."

Yes, to "become friends" is literally the same in Japanese - tomodachi ni naru.
