Then you'd better stick with the Canada option as it has THE LONGEST coastline in the world!

I guess I have very short imagination but, I cannot fathom exchanging the U.S. Cuba, Belize and Guatemala for any other set of neighbors. I wish we'd be closer to Canada and South America tough.

I hate to be the one that pops the bubble but you're having a fantasy over East Asia.Yes we have sunshine in summer but the heat is anything but pleasant,and it rains all the time here.In winter it rains like Germanic Europe(drizzling),while in summer it rains like there's a typhoon outside.
Then you get REAL typhoons.

Stick with non-sunshine Germanic Europe,I'm serious.

Isn't East Asia colder and/or drier than "Germanic Europe" in winter though?

I doubt Shanghai gets the drizzle Dublin gets...

East Asia is very wide when you mention as the whole region.
"Colder Asia" represents at least 36th parallel north and more northward. (38~39th degrees in Japan, Sendai's winter months are very similar to northern Germany)

Shanghai is about 3 degrees warmer than Amsterdam in winter.
