The series title is 'Shin Yoshiwara hakkei' (新吉原八景 - Eight views in the New Yoshiwara). The view is 'Sens˘ji no bansh˘' (浅草寺の晩鐘 - Evening bell at Sensoji; temple in Asakusa).

The courtesan is Hamamurasaki of the Tama house (玉屋内濱紫 Tamaya-uchi Hamamurasaki).

The series was originally published by Tsutaya Jűzabur˘, c.1821-22. Your print is a modern reproduction.
