I'm no great expert, but both prints *look* like surimono to me, at least in terms of stylistic elements. And both of my attributions are to artists closely associated with surimono production.
In formal terms, surimono are typically defined as "… any print first commissioned by a private person or a private institution, such as amateur poets and their clubs – but not commercial publishers of prints – which were circulated or distributed outside the commercial network of shops."

Here's an article on the topic that may be helpful. In particular, it discusses the issue of Meiji-era surimono reprints:
