A possibility that comes to mind is that the used blocks of this actor print were sold by Kagaya Kichibei to a local publisher in Toyama who could have reiussed the design in the 1870s as a 'baiyaku-e' (patent medicine print) or 'Toyama-e' used as a free gift by Toyama based peddlers who distributed medicines in Japan. The aniline colors seem to have been stenciled on the paper. Anyway, I don't think that this print was published in Tokyo.
