So if the Wiki ( https://www.msx.org/wiki/Hitachi_MB-H2 ) is correct, this MSX has a JP21 socket (same connector as SCART but different pinout).
Check Emphy's post on this thread for a pre-made cable adapter from JP21 to common SCART.

thanks a lot @Pentarou . looking at that thread, the cost of this cable would be very high. so better if I'll find someone able to build one for me.

Try to contact the Retrocable Spanish shop. Although this cable is not in their catalogue, I'm sure they will make one for you. Besides prices are cheaper.

Mhhh .. I ask to Retrocable shop and they say they could build the right cable for my MSX. but it will cost 30 euro (shipping included from Spain). Is it a good price or not ?

You can buy a converter from japanese scart to euro scart.
It costs about 10,—
I use that also here
