This is just another data point: I'm a giant blond gaijin roaming the streets of Tokyo. It doesn't bother me when people ask where I'm from. Obviously my ancestors spent some time in Northern Europe, but I'm from North America originally. That's not immediately apparent... so the question doesn't really bother me.
