Label on box,
趣味豊かな   - Pottery with taste
趣味之御陶器 - Hobbies pottery
關囗やきもの  - Seki囗 Pottery
Unforunately, I can't decipher the 2nd character in the name of maker.

Inscription on one sake cup,
別府 海地獄 Beppu Umi Jigoku (Sea Hell) - Name of a hot spring in Kyushu.
Seemingly, this sake set was produced for selling in the souvenir shop(s) on the premises of this spa.

With regards,
