Question about English (US)

Examples:
①The climate of Tokyo is milder than that of Hokkaido.
②The students in the U.S. are so different from those in Japan.

I learned that repeating a noun, which is already used in a sentence, is not natural. Like the examples use "that" and "those".

How about using "it" and "them"?
- The climate of Tokyo is milder than "it" of Hokkaido.
-The students in the U.S. are so different from "them" in Japan.

Do you feel something weird from the sentences above?
I feel so personally, but not sure about why. Could you guys give me some opinions please?
