There are a bunch more on their card, but I can't read the kanjis.

several brands in small and larger vials, but just barely the basic 20 or 25 oils available (medium range of selection)
Ikebukuro store: tel 03-3980-6111 fax 03-3980-3084
(there are at least 14 stores across Japan)

Body Shop
one brand and selection of only 8 or 10, not even the basic 20 (VERY small range of selection)

They are in the Tamagawa Takashimaya SC. South building 4th floor of the shopping center.

This is right around the corner from the Hanzomen/Den en Toshi train line station named Futago Tamagawa Station.

If you're looking for high-quality, therapeutic-grade essential oils, Young Living cannot be beat! They are very popular in the US and have recently opened a branch in Tokyo. Their website is in Japanese, but they have English-speaking representatives in Tokyo. You can see the American website to get an idea of what you're looking at on the Japanese one.
