The one way trip from Sapporo to Hakodate takes almost four hours! I don't think it is a good idea to visit Hakodate in a day trip from Sapporo! Or are you planning to fly?

May I suggest the following, more efficient route: first visit Sapporo with a side trip to Otaru and Niseko. Then, take a bus or train to Noboribetsu (some hotels in Noboribetsu offer free shuttle buses from Sapporo to staying guests). Then take the train to Hakodate and fly from Hakodate to Osaka.

That sounds much better to me, except that Noboribetsu is a onsen resort, and I find that onsen resorts are best enjoyed by spending a night there. So, instead of visiting Noboribetsu on a daytrip, how about visiting it on an overnight stop between Hakodate and Sapporo?

Hakodate - (train) - Noboribetsu - (bus or train) - Sapporo

As mentioned above, some hotels offer a free bus between Noboribetsu and Sapporo to staying guests:
