re: Japan?

It is a revenue stamp (or perhaps telegraph), but that is all I can tell you about it.

re: Japan?

Agreed, There are a great many Japanese revenue stamps that closely resemble postage stamps. I find a few pages devoted to them and placed at the back of the album is the best way to deal with them. They often have interesting cancels.

re: Japan?

Japan document revenue stamp. It looks like yours is perf 12-13, which I believe would make it the 1889 series.

re: Japan?

It is a Japanese general revenue tax stamp, listed by Barefoot as 1883, catalogue price is 50 pence ($1). A similar series was issued for Medicine tax with the top 3 characters changed.
