Japanese art

I see the signature (believe Yoshiyuki? - Japanese), I am native Japanese, but not 100% sure with old writing and barely see. My daughter was working in Seattle and the wealthy family gave this to her since she is half Japanese. They brought it back from Japan years ago they said. She moved overseas so my other daughter got it but was unfortunately damaged during the move. This is now located in Montana, USA.
