I was not able to find the print anywhere online, but the title of the series reads Fūzoku jūniji uchi 風俗十二時うち "customs of the twelve hours" with this print being "hiru yattsu toki: mi no koku" 昼八ツ時 未の刻, corresponding to 14:00. Using the hours of a day was merely a generic counting scheme popular within print series.
