Hi, this image of the print is on its side - the red cartouche at the bottom is supposed to be on the right-hand side.
The image is too fuzzy to be sure of the signature, but the first character is pretty definitely 'Yoshi'. It _might_ be Yoshiharu -that's the best match of the 'Yoshi[something]' signatures I have illustrations of.
The censor zodiac date seal reads 'Hare/2'; this form of censor seal (separate 'aratame' and zodiac date) was in use from 1853-57, so that would date this to 1855, second month.
I suspect this is one panel from a triptych; one would normally expect to see some sort of title cartouche on a single print, but this print does not have one.
Hope this is useful.
