It is possible to travel from Narita to Hokkaido in one day. You will need to take Narita Express to Tokyo Station and transfer to Hokkaido Shinkansen to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto.

You can find the schedule on Hyperdia: http://www.hyperdia.com/cgi/en/search.html?dep_node=TOKYO&arv_node=SHIN-HAKODATE-HOKUTO&via_node01=&via_node02=&via_node03=&year=2020&month=09&day=06&hour=09&minute=00&search_type=0&search_way=&transtime=undefined&sort=0&max_route=5&faretype=0&airplane=off&ship=off&lmlimit=null&search_target=route&facility=reserved&sum_target=7

Please note that the Shikansen arrives at Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station near Hakodate city. Traveling to Sapporo takes another 3-4 hours.

It really makes no sense to take a train that way - it would take you over 9 hours, completely murdering the day. And right after flying around the world on a long airplane trip? It defies logic. If you are already at Narita, why not fly? If you don't include the flight as part of your international ticket, there are dirt cheap airfares on ANA's Experience Japan Fare, as well as low cost carriers like Jet Star and Peach. Money is one important consideration, but so is time, if you are on a limited trip to Japan.
