It's a print from the series 'Kyy shko den' (Lives of valiant tiger warriors), designed by Utagawa Yoshiiki (1833-1904), here signing 'Ikkeisai Yoshiiku ga'. The series was published in 1870 by miya Kyjir (Kyd).

I believe the warrior is Yamada Emosaku (last kanji in the name is lacking on the print), a Japanese Christian, and a prominent figure in the Shimabara Rebellion in the 16th century.

Guy.
