Answer: I suggest you contact Dessa Goddard of Bonhams and Butterfield in San Francisco. She is the head of the Asian Department; Doyle New York is also a good contact. (Asian Dept.)

Keep in mind that condition and signature are very important factors for value. Age does not necessarily reflect a high potential value of a painting or print. Let me know what the out come is, and good luck, Your Japanese painting dpes look interesting, however.
