Best way to get to tokyo station

We are staying in Shinjuku district and will be catching the bullet train from Tokyo to Hakodate. Which Shinkansen station would be easier to get to from Shinjuku if we are to target leaving on the 22nd Oct at 10am. What time should we leave the hotel so that we are to arrive the departing station on time. Thanks

You can use the JR Chuo line from Shinjuku to Tokyo station and from there use the Hayabusa Shinkansen to Hakodate. This would be the easiest route.
