Question: Gaijin Question?

This is a somewhat far fetched question. But here it goes.
I was born in Japan, but moved to the U.S. when I was a baby. Both my biological parents were ethnically Japanese (meaning did not have another blood in them such as Korean, Chinese, etc) and had Japanese citizenship. Therefore, I had Japanese citizenship as a baby as well.
However, when I was about 3 months old, I was adopted and brought to the U.S. And now have a U.S. citizenship, I no longer have my Japanese citizenship. I am not fluent in Japanese, but I am learning. If for say, I were to move to Japan, obtain Japanese citizenship again, and live there say 10+ years, would I still be looked upon as a gaijin? Even if I spoke fluent Japanese and understood the customs and culture of Japan? I'm just wondering, as this is really my life long dream to work and live there.
