Thanks so much. I also was a little baffled about the lack of some identifiers, but it helped separate it further from my other two similar prints.

The print is approximately 21 cm x 17 cm. (23 x 19 including the pattern.)

The bleed through shows that it's definitely a woodblock print. The paper looks old, handmade and has some thinning and wormholes. At no point is the paper torn into the image. (There are some ink smudges outside of the print border.)

My instinct is that it's an original print, but I would love another opinion.

I found it cleaning through my parent's storage locker. For perspective, my family lived in Japan from 82 to 87 and this print was most likely picked up there. It was framed (I had to take the frame off to get a look at the paper and the bleed through) and there was no documentation. I have a significant number of prints, and don't particularly like this one, so if it's an original, I'll probably sell it.

Thanks for any info someone can throw my way.
