Hello,

I am trying to identify the following Japanese woodblock prints:

1.

The previous owner believed that these are works by Hokusai (1760-1849) from a series depicting the 53 Stations of the Tokaido. The titles seem to indicate that these prints belong to a Tokaido series:

The first appears to represent the 21st station of the Tokaido (岡部 (Okabe)).

The second seems to depict the 29th station of the Tokaido (浜松宿 (Hamamatsu-juku)).

Stylistically, they could be early works by Hokusai. However, I have not been able to match these prints to any known Tokaido series by Hokusai, which has led me to question their attribution.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance with their identification and wish to thank you in advance for any help provided.
