Any other black folks here?

Mom sent me an email asking. Instead of just replying back to her I'll just answer it here. No.

In fact there are very few people of any ethnicity other than Japanese here. Even the tourist all seem to be Japanese. I've seen a few non asian folks touring around but i haven't seen one...wait, i did see a black couple when i got off the train in Kyoto.

Today i sat outside Starbucks for about an hour at a pretty busy intersection and only noticed 4 non asians and two of those were a JET employee and his father.
