Nice collection. These are all from Japan. Note the chrysanthemum.

I'm afraid that I don't have much knowledge regarding Japanese stamps though I can tell you that, for example, your 2nd and 3rd photos show late 19th century Japanese revenue stamps.

The bottom photo shows postal definitive from 1942 - 1946.

Hope that helps a little.

Welcome to the forum Jonah

They are mostly Documentary Revenues from Japan in pictures 1-3. The oval in picture 2 is a postal stationery cut-out. As Alex states picture 4 is the standard wartime definitive series. Shimomura is the catalogue you need for Japanese revenues!
