Interesting indeed.

It seems that this artist, among others, such as Hiroshige, Harunobu, would use the 8 views of Omi as a recurring theme, just like the 53 Stations of the Tokaido series.

There would be a 1st printing made in 1805 with yellow green tones and a kiwame seal ( Very good find from Hans Olof), a later edo era edition that this print would most likely belong to (Such as the 3 prints referenced by the MFA); the Chicago Musuem also have another edition probably made in the 1810's:

I was able to discover another interesting article about the 8 views of Omi series and the chinese origin of the theme :

Thank you so much for the valuable help.
