Frederic B.

Shari, Hokkaido, Japan

Frédéric B. born in France. Living in Japan for 30 years, Call me Fredi !

After spending my Engineer Career in Japan for more than 25 years, I left technical field and Tokyo to move to Eastern Hokkaido in Shari near Shiretoko, to enjoy nature and my hobby fishing, especially stream, Japanese Tenkara fly fishing, and salmon fishing.

I have been fascinated by Shiretoko nature wildlife and Ainu culture and decided to share my experience as a nature guide.
I have been trained by Senior experienced guide from Hokkaido Private Adventure company.
I have a wider and deep knowledge of geography and history of the land of Hokkaido.

I like to talk, discuss and make new friends! I can speak fluently, English, French, and Japanese.
I take care of all kind of customers including kids, youngsters and senior so that they can enjoy outdoor activities. I will guide you to discover and experience the wonders of this preserved last natural frontier, Shiretoko, named from Ainu Sir'Etok . . . End of the Earth . . .

My tours are fully private, Include transportation in 4WD car from your Hotel, or Airport nearby Shiretoko National park.
Enjoy not only four seasons sightseeing in Shiretoko Hokkaido but outdoors activities adapted to all.

I'm waiting for you in the City of Shari or Abashiri, nearby airport Memanbetsu, Nakashibetsu or Kushiro.

A Recent Review of this guide

Wouah et Merci sont les deux premiers mots qui me viennent à l'esprit quand je repense à ma journée avec Frédéric. J'ai tout simplement eu l'impression de découvrir la région avec un frère, qui a totalement répondu à mes souhaits et qui a su partager ses connaissances approfondies et variées, mais aussi son expérience personnelle humaine grâce à son vécu dans cette ville qu'il aime avec beaucoup de sensibilité . Merci pour ce rêve éveillé Frédéric ! et J'espère à une prochaine :)
