Japan and Misc-store Amsterdam

Japan is becoming more and more popular (in the West). Japan is loved for its exquisite food, rich culture, innovative design, and not the least, for its absolute leadership in the realm of stationery. At Misc-store Amsterdam, we have always had a close relationship with Japan. It started with our personal fascination with Japan and it lead to our current range of quality Japanese products at Misc-store Amsterdam. From the start, we have carried a wide range of Japanese brands, and we are always continuing to expand our range of Japanese products. From superior Japanese paper by Midori and luxury everyday essentials by Postalco, to intense Hibi incense and finely crafted Hasami Porcelain. Everyday, we bring curated essential Japanese goods for your home and desk to you.
