Probably herpes: By far the most common cause of painful genital sores is herpes. Your cousin should see a doctor experienced in STDs -- the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis, and treatment for the first episode of genital herpes must be started ASAP in order to be most effective. In Japan, most STD experts are urologists. Good luck to him!
