JAPAN..?

I should add, "I don't know", and that's why I'm asking. 

I picked this up at a tag sale/flea market.

Are there no markings on the bottom..?

The writing on the left looks Japanese to me, and the old man with the hat, long pipe and robe resembles a Japanese man...or Korean...

Not a thing on the bottom, except the reverse image of the front.

A catalog of Goldfarb souvenirs is here:

The files had disappeared, but had a copy and up uploaded a text-searchable version today. 

Unfortunately, the item you seek was not supplied by Goldfarb.

I have done a bit of searching, trying to identify the Asian language characters at the lower left, but so far, no luck.

Searching for "image of Asian man with long pipe" leads to China.

It also leads to Korea, with pictures showing hats similar to the one on the tray.

With China having no Pavilion in 1964-1965, it seems the two main suspects are Hong Kong or Korea.

Well that really wasn't China.  It was Taiwan. 

Due to the political climate, the Republic of China would not be recognized by the US until 1972.
