I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal.
Considering the photos, this item is:

A kakemono (掛物, "hanging thing"), more commonly referred to as a kakejiku (掛軸, "hung scroll"), is a Japanese hanging scroll used to display and exhibit paintings and calligraphy inscriptions and designs mounted usually with silk fabric edges on a flexible backing, so that it can be rolled for storage. The roll ends are made of wood, bone, ivory and porcelain. For newer pieces plastic was also used as well.

The motifs were often painted on silk. The mounting takes place on paper, the "frame" forms a brocade border. In this case, it is a landscape of a village. A special paste, matured over many years, keeps high-quality pieces smooth and rollable even after a long time.

Many well-known motives were often copied and also provided with the original signature.
That is why it is difficult even to assign the motifs or signature exactly but according to the details this is from circa 20th century.

$ 100 - 200*
