"prob. Hiroshige, but search engine couldn't find"
With any suspected Hiroshige print, the place to start is John Roden's Hiroshige site:
This one is there (hint, it's Tokaido Station #20, Fuchu"
"very strange paper - more dense then usual woodblocks"
I have seen reproductions of this series printed on a very heavy, soft paper - almost like blotting paper. (Some later surimono are also printed on similar paper.) It sounds like this may be what you have here?
