"prob. Hiroshige, but search engine couldn't find"

With any suspected Hiroshige print, the place to start is John Roden's Hiroshige site:

http://www.hiroshige.org.uk/

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?
