If you don't want to pay so much money, you can make mugs like that by yourself if you have an inkjet printer. There is a special transfer film available that lets you put any design on china, glass or metal. It works the same as with the t-shirt transfer films. After you have placed your design on the mug it is fixed in the oven. This is the only step that might need a bit of practicing to get the time right but in the end - you have your own and personal set of aikido / kanji /... mugs.
Another way for writing kanji on mugs are special china pens.
