Any antique pros out there (particularly fine china) ? I have a cool piece...

I have this teacup and saucer piece. The decorations are raised. Hand painted. I have found very similiar peices but it is the marking I am curious about. All the others are on a gold sticker, says "made in Japan",  or some other symbol. Mine simply says "Japan". I have googled every type of wording I can think of and can't find this particular stamp. 

Also, I think it is porcelain. When I hold it up to the light, I can see light shining through.

It's interesting to see so many cups with such a similiar design and I've been having fun looking it up.

Any advice would be awesome! =]

That is very pretty!  If I was still talking to my dad and evil stepmother I could ask her about it.  She is very into antiques.  She buys them from yard sales, fixes them up and resells them.

Nothing machine stamped "JAPAN" is worth money.  "Occupied Japan"  pieces run a couple bucks to about 15 dollars, but this is not that.  Just enjoy the decoration.
