Odd. The diamond-shaped red seal in the lower right is Hiroshige's - but the signature above it is not. It might be 'Ryusho', which his pupil and successor Hiroshige II used for a while late in his career.

For maximal confusion, in the upper left corner it says "Kunisada ga" ('painted by Kunisada'), which is not impossible as ukiyo-e artists did occasionally collaborate on prints.

However, the name adjacent (usually the first part of the name), starting with 仙果, isn't one used by Kunisada:

although if this print dates from the end of Hiroshige II's career, Kunisada I was using the name 'Toyokuni' by then, and this might be one of his pupils (Kunisada II or III).
