OK, folks... went to the bike shop today and got the tubes.
shop price 946 yen each
Did get a discount, but I didn't ask for a receipt so I don't know the exact price.

I bought one of these when I bought the bike and and had to use it a few weeks ago. Seems heavy duty.

I haven't had any flat for at least more than 12000km and for some reason, this spare tube always with me, not really protected, in my cycling bag or other bags, must have been previously in contact with some sharp objects.
Not sure if that would have prevented it, but I keep my spare tubes in a plastic bag so there is always at least one layer between the rubber of the tube and whatever might harm it when it's in my front bag.
