Ever since its establishment in 1910, Honto Tsubaki in Chuo-ward of Tokyo has been a manufacturer of camellia oil products. This plant-based oil, extracted from Camellia, has been used as a cosmetic beauty product since the Heian period in Japan.

The founder comes from Toshima Island, one of the many Izu Islands south of Tokyo. Toshima Island was a major center of camellia oil production since the Edo period, and the founder's wish was to make his home island's produce more known and loved in the Japanese mainland. “Honto-Tsubaki pure camellia oil Toshima”, is a long top seller of the company for being 100% Toshima-sourced and natural.

The company opens a booth right in front of its building, where you can learn about, and buy their products at a special factory price. If you’re unsure about the differences, or how to use them, the staff are there to help you find the product just right for you!
