My response to this probably comes way too late, but maybe you find this somehow.

Your print seems to be a cheap rip-off (in the sense that it pays much less attention to detail), or let's say it was "inspired" by a triptych print originally made by Utagawa Yoshiiku in 1868.

The technique of closely copying other artist's works was common during the production of woodblock prints during the 19th century.
