This little 'one gulp' sake cup is rather unassuming at first but is much more interesting when you hold it in your hand and explore it. I believe the mark is that of Yu Fujiwara.

That is the mark of Yu Fujiwara (1932 - 2001).

Yu Fujiwara was the fourth Bizen potter to become a National Living Treasure when he received the accolade in 1996. His father was Kei Fujiwara, who had also been designated a NLT. Yu came to prominence in 1967 when he won the prestigious Japan Ceramic Society award and in 1980 he was designated an Intangible Cultural Property of Okayama Prefecture.

In the tokkuri box there was also a leaflet. From the image it suggests it was from c1970.
