Saucer Marks Cup Bottom of cup

I bought this small Chinese cup and saucer as a child, in a jumble sale for 6d. I have always loved it although it is very crude.

The cup is a pretty shape - slightly formed like a four petalled flower. Although, the decoration does appear crudely done.

I have no idea about the marks on the bottom of the saucer but would love to know something about it.

There are no marks on the bottom of the cup.

Any help appreciated,

Thank you SO much for the information!! I had no idea it was Japanese. How can you tell? Is it by the costumes or writing. And how lovely to know what the writing says. I certainly shall research now. Thank you again.

Hello,
I cannot tell you much as this is Japanese is not my field. The mark says Made by Tashiro.
You will find more information if you search for this name on Google. Hope this helps.
