Your image does appear to be a print by Hiroshige from the series "City Sparrows Walking the Tôkaidô Road" (Hizakurige dôchû suzume). The design is of "Hamamatsu station". See link below for Waseda University image:
MFA link with information regarding a different design from the same series:
From Edward F. Strange, "The Colour-Prints of Hiroshige" --
"Hizakurige Dochu Suzume. Humorous adventures of the two travellers Yajirobei and Kitahachi on the Tokaido. Publisher, Tsutaya. Oban Yokoye. Only seven have been identified."
Hope this helps.
