I read the title as 'Kamie Tomoyo ki' (Chronicle of kamie Tomoyo). This is probably a very satirical document that refers probably to the Boshin War (1868-69). Therefore, this triptych remained completely anonymous. I guess that the designer and publisher both supported the Imperial forces from Kyoto, against the troops loyal to the Shogunate in Edo, but I'm not sure of that.

Very interesting and valuable triptych.

Guy.
