The red cartouche lower right is the artist;s signature, it says ' Kunisada ga' ('ga' means 'painted by'); only I'm too lazy to look up the 'something'! But with that clue you can probably find it. It's not Kunisada I, this is too late for him, it's Kunisada II or perhaps even III.

The little round seal above that is a censor seal, which should give you the date; here:

is a page on how to read them.

Hope this is useful!
