Japanese matcha set. Looks nice, too. Is there tea powder in the container?

mas_oahu,
Am I correct in thinking you are asking how to use these matcha utensils? I cannot read what is written on the tea bowl box, but if you search Youtube for videos on how to prepare matcha, you will find all the information you need. There are topics also on TeaChat you can search for. Your bowl and spoons and whisks are all for powder tea, and you can casually prepare it or go as far as following tea ceremony rituals.
I am guessing, but I believe your tea bowl is a Hagiyaki bowl, made in the city of Hagi, Japan.
Enjoy your new treasures.
