Jan. in 2006, I knew this stamp on the internet and wanted to buy in France. I looked for the post office at Montparnasse and kiosk in Paris. But I couldn't find it. I gave up a little. In Nice, I went to tabako and found it. I could buy it that is reserved. Aug. in 2018, I noticed that this stamp is sold on the Internet, the japanese site. I bought it too !
