This is one of my most favorite find in my Oriental finds. I have 4 in total but will post the final one after it is on the forum. I have been able to get information on two which are located at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
They are framed but I took them out to inspect the paper used and cleaned the glass. They have been returned to their frames and grace my hallway wall.

My guess is that you identified the first two prints. The prints are by:

Print #1 - Kunisada

Print #2 - Kuniyoshi:

Print #3 - From the half covered signature in the lower left, I am guessing that the print is by Kunichika. It would help identification if you could expose the signature.

This is the 4th one and a photo of the 3rd without the matting. Thanks to you all for the contribution.

Your last print (The Road to Fuji in a Single Glance, Part 2 (Fugaku dôchû ichiran, sono ni)) is by Sadahide. The Boston MFA has a copy here:

I still can't see the signature on the other print.

Thank you Stan. Now I have to try to locate the other two pieces but very happy to have three pieces that they have.
About the other print with the lantern, It was trimmed when framed so unfortunately this is the most of it that can be seen. The borders to all of them was trimmed when framed.
