As George already has stated, the designer of the print is Hiroshige (1797-1858). It belongs to the series Kisokaidō rokujūkyū-tsugi no uchi ("From the sixty-nine stations of the Kiso Highway", late 1830s), and it depicts the station Karuizawa.

Your images are not good enough to make certain, but most likely your print is a 20th century reproduction or reprint.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
