A-

I don't like the winter temps- slush on occasion? And summers too sultry, esp. at night.

Everything else is great.

The winter pictures look like the Mid-Atlantic after a huge snowstorm. It's like a winter from that region that's been supercharged. That said, the winter temperatures are too warm, though snow won't be a problem. Summers are just stinking-hot. Still, I give this one a B-, closely bordering on C+ since I can't decide which grade to assign it.

Certainly one of if not the best humid subtropical climates I've seen.

Summers a tad warm and muggy, but overall not bad.

Summers a tad too warm for my preference but still tolerable. Winters should be a tad cooler but again, it's manageable. Precip and sunshine looks good, so do the records. B+

A+

I'm not sure I'd give any Japanese climate lower than a C+ and certainly no worse than a B+ if it gets sufficient snow, which many locations do.

F... temperature wise it would actually be a D-.. but the excessive snowfall pushes it into failing territory
