I wanted to write a sentence that means:
Okinawa and Hokkaido are different, their climate and the time cherry blossoms bloom differ.
I was wondering if this would be the appropriate way to write that:
I want to make sure the second phrase doesn't sound like "climate and cherry-blossom-blooming time are different (from each other)"
Another way I could think of writing this is (but might have two 違い too close):
Basically, is there a grammatically different way to express "This two things are different" vs. "This two things differ on these two points"?
