They do bear a striking resemblance. Might be the angle, but it seems the painting has a much thicker jaw shape. Not quite as slender. But the photo might be of a younger him, so I’m not ruling it out. Here’s hoping somehow you can get in touch and ask if his family can confirm anything. Keep on digging!

I was gonna suggest maybe he was from a unit that stayed for the occupation. I know my grandpa was in the 27th infantry division and they stayed to occupy Fukushima prefecture. I remember him and my grandma saying he returned well after the war ended.
This sort of thing is right up my alley

Hmm. The face shape isn't right. The silk soldier has a much rounder face and seems older.

 The man in the photo has somewhere between a heart and oval shaped face.  He also looks thinner and younger, like he's fresh out of his teens.

Very true. I'm making a list of anyone I come across in the Americal Division who looks vaguely like him, just in case. It is a painting after all, so it's probably not a perfect likeness. It still doesn't feel right though so I'm just gonna keep looking.
