Subject:Sake cups

Continuation from another post with a different set of cups. These do seem to bear some sort of an inscription. Any help reading them would be much welcomed.

Inscriptions on the cup (outside),
神戸 - Kōbe (Inside of the circle)
還暦祝 - 60th Birthday Celebration
株式會社 神戸銀行 - Kōbe Bank Ltd.
Inside the cups,
壽 - Longevity
Box lid (outside),
御木杯 - Wooden cup
Box lid (inside),
大坂 尚美堂造 - Ǒsaka, Made by Naomi-dō

The name Kōbe Bank Ltd. was used between 1936 and 1945.

With regards,
