Following EU regulations, from July 1st 2021 online shops must charge customers the VAT % from their home country.

All prices are shown including 21% (NL VAT rate); if your country’s VAT rate different, the prices will change accordingly during checkout.

EXAMPLE
Postalco One Year Wall Calendar €20

- This only happens after your shipping address has been filled out.
Do not use any of the Express Checkout buttons in the cart (Paypal, Apple Pay, Google Pay or Shop Pay): this skips the checkout process & therefor the VAT cannot be deducted by the system.
- Import fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

So much about daily life and our surroundings we take for granted, both when we are at home as well when we travel abroad. Why not look at everyday items in more detail and learn about their history to appreciate them in a novel way? Let's start in Japan. Why do some old Japanese houses have thick bundles of straw attached to the outside walls, and what do the different gravel patterns in Japanese gardens symbolize?

With the Illustrated Guide - Japanese Architecture and Things you will quickly become an expert on the simple stories of everyday Japanese architecture and things. Whether your are about to board a plane to Tokyo or you want to expand your knowledge as a Japanese native, this guide will introduce you to a huge range of taken-for-granted elements of architecture and everyday life by telling you their backstory and deeper meaning and significance.

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.

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions &
plants a tree for every order

Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like. That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.

Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
A selection of these climate projects are shown here.
