As to people pointing and saying "gaijin", it'll happen sometimes, although mostly by elementary school kids. It's annoying sometimes, but like anything you'll get used to it, especially since it's almost never said with malice, but rather with surprise.
And if you can't handle getting laughed at by little kids, well then...

Maybe 15 years ago, but not now.
And there's nothing more 怪しい than a gaijin with died black hair wearing sunglasses. Lord knows that I'd run the other way.

Foreigners (white or black) don't draw 1% of the gawks and unwanted attention that we did back when I first came here. Put this particular concern out of your mind.
Considering Mike has been in Japan for a very long time it would be best to pay attention to this quote...(though I know Mike doesn't like to boast about how long he's lived in Japan...^^;;)
