Please leave the print alone.
The best thing you can do with your print is put it in an acid free archival folder.
We nearly daily encounter prints which have been ruined and ravished by "home-studied" restorers (dealers and collectors). They obviously work for a monetary gain. In the process they are ravishing the cultural heritage of ukiyo-e.
Some of these people have been very active on this forum, please disregard any restoration advice you find on the internet.
Either give your print to a restorer specializing in ukiyo-e prints or leave it alone.
