I don't know enough to tell you one way or another. A picture of the bottom which is where a makers name, dates, and that sort of thing can often be found and is a big denominator in worth would be helpful.

IMO by looking at the pictures, due to vivid colors, assumed transfer print and more modern looking designs they are not antiques. That's without seeing the Made in China, which is also a modern looking print.
Antique wise: The key marking to look for is Occupied Japan as well as markings in Japanese.
Pretty however, and would be interested in seeing the update if they turn out to be of value, with the look alone they should be worth something.
