The mark on the 1st picture is a modern TACHIKICHI 橘吉 mark, late 20th century, see also my picture.

Tachikichi was founded in 1752 and traces its roots to Edo Period Kyoto. For more than 260 years, Tachikichi has maintained its reputation as Japan's pre-eminent maker of traditional Japanese tableware. Its wares are taken from many kilns throughout Japan, highlighting many types of Japanese porcelain and pottery. Tachikichi products carry the Tachikichi mark.
Nowadays the company is named: Tachikichi Corp.

The mark on the 2nd picture is Sato 里. It looks like the Aoki mark, but it isn't. However, I can't tell you more about this mark / porcelain, looks quite new.

Dear Martin
Thank you very much for your excellent reading, this items got my attention due to the shade of blue which seemed similar to the older Meiji-Edo pieces in my collection.
Best regards
