Not really no. The Japanese did not really start living in Hokkaido until relatively recently, and the Ainu did not really have a culture of temple building (correct me if wrong Ainu experts). Therefore Hokkaido is actually the one part of Japan where you will struggle to find temples and shrines, certainly older ones. Hokkaido is for enjoying the great outdoors - see temples elsewhere.

If you are into shrines and temples, in Sapporo there is Hokkaido Shrine kC_{ which can easily be reached by subway.
