Hi there,

Since you do all your travel within Hokkaido, it makes most sense to look at using a JR Hokkaido Pass (these can be purchased locally).

You could visit Furano but it would mean dropping something else, as Furano is in a different direction than your other visits. A bit more time in Sapporo could also be nice.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
