Similar to the California vs. Florida poll, only this time there's no "Other" option as that would have made it too easy to write-in California or Hawaii.

Overall I think Florida is much more similar with everything being perfect and efficient. I just got back from vacation there and now I wish I still lived there, and didn't sell the condo. The roads have always been well paved and surfaced without a single pothole, and the people are polite and respectful which is why the crime rate is so low. You also have the Brightline train in South FL that looks like the JR regional trains in Japan.

The only similar Georgia shares more with Japan is the climate, at least with the mainland/Honshu island as well as Kyushu. Florida's climate is more like Okinawa. Overall Georgia is more like S. Korea than like Japan.

Having been to all 3, I can tell you GA and FL are nothing like Japan. They’re not even close enough to draw comparisons.

I've lived in all 3 and neither Florida or Georgia are similar to Japan.

I think neither one. Japan's climate, infrastructure and societal mores is comparable with that of Vancouver in southern British Columbia and coastal island regions in south western Canada. I don't think it's comparable with Georgia or Florida.

Also I forgot to mention earlier, but other similarities between Florida and Japan:

- Both have multiple large cities, and metros that are clusters of large cities
- Both have an elder/aging population
- The fashion aesthetics are similar
- Both have a Disney theme park
- Key West is like the "Okinawa" of Florida

With all due respect, have you been to these places? Comparing Japan vs GA or FL is like comparing apples and oranges to a television.

Not only been but actually have lived in all 3. I tend to find similarities in little things that most people don't pay attention to.

No, Japan's climate is very different from Vancouver. There's nowhere in Japan with Vancouver's dry summers, most of Japan has hotter summers and the few places that don't have hotter summers have colder and snowier winters. Japan's climate is a lot like America's east coast. Hokkaido's climate is similar to New England and upstate New York. Honshu's climate is like the mid-Atlantic states. Kyushu and Shikoku are quite similar to Georgia climate-wise.

I always thought the Tokyo/Kanto area's climate is warmer than the VA/DC area but cooler than Atlanta's, so somewhere in between like Charlotte or Nashville, or the NC coast.

Tokyo's climate is probably closest to that of Norfolk, Virginia. Not an exact match, due to Tokyo's heavier rainfall and seasonal lag (warmest month is August rather than July), but pretty close.
