Tea cup of this restaurant has illust of "Otafuku". Otafuku is a famous Japanese mask which is use for a type of dance in a Noh play. In Kanji character, we write Otafuku "お多福". This literally means “Much Good Fortune” .
About Shofukutei, the kanji character is "招福亭", which means “Happiness bringing restaurant” 
Otafuku is like a shofukutei's symbol character which brings happiness and good fortune to people who come and eat their noodles.
