Been 17 years since I rode up there. All my photos are slowly fading.
Before all your memories fade too, pray tell! (Did you ride up there from Sapporo?)

But back to the immediate predicament. If that one store is unavailable, Google map offers several more. (Of course several may do little more than change tyres, or may have closed.)

Rode from Omiya, Saitama to Nigata city and then ferry to Otaru, bike around the Island in an anti clockwise direction and then ferry across to Aomori and down route 4 back to Saitama. One month of fun , it was October, so ice and snow on Shiretoko toge. I still need to finish Hakaodate to Otaru to finish the lap. Maybe with my son in a few years.

kiwisomon: I will.. I arrive in Wakkanai on the Aug 14th from Santa Fe, NM, I'll be assembling my bike on the 15th, and just wanted to have a bike shop backup plan if necessary. My journey starts in the 16th (my 60th birthday) and ends in Cape Sata on October 2.
