I'm six foot and when I was in Japan I was a head taller then most, but being blonde and a head above everyone, most likely you'll stand out. But no worries japanese people love everything different and obscure. You'd have a great time.

Yes you will stand out. First of all, Japanese have black hair thus a person who has blonde hair will definitely stand out. Most Japanese are short in nature. You being 5' 11 will mean you will stand out due to height advantage.
Not as much as you might think in Japan...there is a large european community over there...mostly business...so its not really uncommon for them to see foreigners...China on the other hand is a different story...people would actually stop and look at you there...you would def be out of the norm in most of their cities...most foreigners are.
