This is a small-format landscape print on the subject of "Edo Hakkei" (The Eight Views of Edo).

It is a "Yusho" (evening view) of a small island which is joined by bridges to the adjacent land.

It is quite old, probably printed around the year 1810.

There are a number of similar print series in the early 1800's. Some of the artists who did these were: Toyohiro, Shunsen, Utamaro II, and their contemporaries

Your particular print does not appear to be signed by the artist. I would call it "anonymous" because if the artist were to take credit for it, the signature would be inside the cartouche area in the center
