This northern island sounds nice. It's known for dry, cool summers so a lot of campers go there, from Australia and southern Asia.
Shiretoko Kokuritsu Koen Rausu Onsen Yaeijo

Address Menashi-gun, Rausu-cho, Yunosawamachi
Contact 01538-7-2111 Rausu City Office
Season June 1 - October 31
Fee Free
Facilities Restrooms, cooking area, water
Activities Fishing, onsen, bird watching, hiking
Onsen Kumanoyu Open-air Bath is 5 minutes on foot from camp and is a natural hot spring.
Getting there Take Route 335 towards Aidomari and turn left onto Route 334 and the campsite is about 4 km before Rausu across from Kuma-no-yu Onsen.
Kuma-no-yu is a beautiful onsen and attracts many visitors in the summer months. The name means "Bear Hot Spring" and if you are lucky (or not) you may see one in the area.

The Hot Springs with (possible) bear would make me feel right at home! And, hey, does anyone know what the activity of "onsen" is? It sounds very relaxing.

The onsen is basically a Japanese public bath.
