It's a depiction of three trio's consisting each of two kabuki actors accompanying a beautiful girl ('bijin'), strolling during their leisure time, ca 1810. Some of the actors wear female clothes refering to their 'onagata' repertoire on stage. Without doubt, kabuki specialists could identify the faces of the actors.
I'm struggling with the reading of the first part of the title - probably the name of a location or fashionable spot near Edo. The second part could be read 'yayoi fūkei' (弥生風景). 'Yayoi' refers to the 3th month of the lunar calendar (March, the beginning of spring time); 'fūkei' means 'scenery'.
