    Roughly 10”x12” and badly damaged. The paper is impossibly thin. I’m assuming they’re Japanese but maybe not from Japan? I’ve got no aspirations or hopes of restoration nor of value but find myself still curious what they are.
    Any help, as always I’d appreciate.

    Looks like a design for a hand fan, but I’m just throwing it out there.

    I think those are Chinese, rather than Japanese.

    I don't know about these, but I'm tagging @Any Jewelry for her fan expertise.

    Those look like mountains in the South China Sea, down near Viet Nam, so I'd vote Chinese too. Ha Long Bay - just looked the proper name up.

    I'm with the others, Chinese fan leaf designs. Although the straight horizon on the first is highly unusual for a Chinese fan. Horizons on Chinese fan leaves generally follow the shape of the leaf.
    Love them.:happy:
