Gaby,

Your image is very blurred, but I believe it could be a print from a series of "Edo hakkei" ("Eight views from Edo"), that was published about 1800-1802. Above are four other prints from the same series.

The individual prints carry no signatures, but they were most probably designed by Hokusai.

I'm far from sure, but I believe your print could be depicting the Zenryu temple in Shinjuku.

Anyway, a better image would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
