If you arn't asian, they will stare at you regardless of whether you are black, caucasian, hispanic, or purple. They are used to seeing the same thing everyday, so when a foreigner walks by you will get alot of stares.
I got stared at alot. I would simply smile and lower my head; either they did the same, or just kept staring.
I just got back from Japan, and I saw black people, and others. Japanese people are usually very polite to foreigners. Anywhere you go you may encounter racists.
Visited Japan in 2007.
I am female.
