I finally identified this Hiroshige print that has been hanging on my wall as one that is mentioned in Stewart's Guide to Japanese Prints. It mentions it as extemely rare; issued during the Prohibition; engraver's seal Tako. It shows the youthful Yoshitsune during his novitiate at the temple of Kurama-yama making his nightly journey to the waterfall.

I was wondering if anyone has ever seen one of these before. I can only find one google image reference and that is at the Rijksmuseum.
