For all my years of collecting, this is the only wooden bowl I have found marked "Occupied Japan". Following the end of World War II in 1945 and until 1952, imported items from Japan into the US had to be marked "occupied".
It is rather obvious it is hand made, being slightly higher on one side.
Considering the age of the bowl, I am very surprised the underside still has a semi-gloss finish on it. The logo stamp is also in good condition.
I consider this simple bowl a real treasure, to display in my home.
