This is a tough one. I prefer the winter in Vancouver as I like rain in the winter. Sendai gets the most rain in the summer plus gets somewhat more snow. As for the summer Vancouver's summer is just too cold but Sendai's summer has way too much cloud.

After thinking about it I'm going to go with Sendai by a hair as it's a bit warmer overall thought the prospect of another large earthquake would leave me very concern. Of course the same thing could happen to Vancouver to.

Vancouver. Cooler and more rainy year round. Sendai is like a Japanese version of NYC.

Sendai. Basically a slightly milder version of my climate. No winter drizzle. Prefer Vancouver's temps, but I hate the drizzle

I think I will have to go with Vancouver for getting much less snow...

I'd pick snow over drizzle any day. Having experienced both in copious amounts, drizzle aided in me getting flu...twice!

Vancouver actually doesn't get that much drizzle. It's more showers or straight rain. It's not exactly like the UK that way.

We don't get that much drizzle actually. Most rain here is short duration on the days it happens. From May-September less than a quarter of the days we had rain (this is going by my weather records and weather notes for these days) had drizzle. The first two main common types of rain (year round) are showers or periods of actual rain. And I'm in BUXTON. SE England probably gets 1/20th of the drizzle the PacNW gets LOL.

My answer to this question is Sendai. Better summers.

I've been in your summers. They are very pleasant. It's just the winter time is the time of constant drizzle. When I talk about drizzle in England, I'm specifically referring to December-February as I stayed in the southeast in that time frame and remember the constant drizzle every week of winter usually only 1-3 days of break a week from it
