following the given signature it is the third one in Lane's list (pupil of Shun-ei). The publisher is Sen-Ichi (Izumi-ya Ichi-bei). Another reference: Basil Stewart 'A guide to Japanese prints and their subject matter', Dover Publication, Inc. New York, 1979, page 366 and page 372 - or see Charlotte van Rappard-Boon 'Catalogue of the Collection of Japanese Prints Part IV - Hiroshige and the Utagawa School - Japanese Prints c. 1810-1860', Rijksprentenkabinet/Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, 1984, page 148/149 where you find another print with a similar signature.
The title of the print not yet read but the two women with the water vessel reminds me on the story of Ariwara no Yukihira who had a love afair with the two girls Matsukaze and Murasame at Suma Bay once he was banned from the capital to this place and where he helped the girls carrying their salt water vessels (the noh play Matsukaze based on this story).
