Hi there,

The itinerary certainly works. What I am curious about is if you have researched each place you plan to visit already. For instance sounkyo is a beautiful place to visit. However you may find Kushiro boring if you don't have plans there, for instance visiting the Kushiro Shitsugen National Park? Otherwise I think visiting Hakodate instead may be a more interesting place to visit or Onuma National Park.

The JR Pass is valid in Hokkaido, you would have to do a significant amount of travel for it to pay off. There's also a JR Hokkaido pass in various options (which is a bit cheaper than a 7 day JR Pass) which may be a better option if you use one to cover the more expensive parts of your itinerary. If you would make a return Sapporo - Hakodate and make a full circle Hokkaido, then a 14 day JR Pass is a very good option.
