Niseko would be a 'classic' trip from Sapporo. However, with 4 days it might be a bit of a squeeze. It takes 2-3 hrs on the train and costs around 2,500 yen. An easier excursion from Sapporo would be Otaru. I liked it there. Only 30 mins from Sapporo by train (about 600 -1000 yen depending on the service you use). If you like hot springs then some friends I know have been to Jozankei and said it was nice. I looked it up; you need to take I bus from Sapporo station maybe. 75 min and 700 yen. Personally, I liked Sapporo a lot and felt there was enough within the city to occupy a few days. But if you're making the trip all the way from Tokyo, then you should probably explore some places outside of the city.
