Which convenience store chain has the best selection of Oden in Tokyo area (Shinjuku/Shibuya/Ebisu)? (e.g. Family Mart, 7-Eleven etc)? Are they generally ok to eat in moderation, and do they use a lot of preservatives?

- Area
Every convenience store chain is in all around areas in Tokyo. You won't have problems finding LAWSON in Shinjuku, as well as Family Mart in Shibuya.

- The convenience store chain with the best selection of Oden
All the store looks the same to me (sorry, oden lovers!) but it seems like 7-Eleven has largest variety. 
Each store has slightly different taste of dashi, it maybe interesting to compare :)

- Preservatives
Many of the food in convenience store use preservatives in some way. However, they are shifting to avoid using such materials. It may change in few years.
