It is Toyokuni I. The print has a date seal (just under the 'kiwame') from Bunka 3, 1st month (1/1806). The actor is Nakayama Tomisaburō.
The style and signature are typical for Toyokuni I during the years 1804-6. From 1807 on, Toyokuni's style becomes suddenly more awkward.
Cfr the copy in the MFA Boston (an erroneous date 10/1802 is given there):
