The full title is 'Uki-e Kto - Atagoyama no zu' (浮絵江都 愛宕山之図 - Perspective picture of Koto, view of Atagoyama). The name 'Kto (江都) in the series title 'Uki-e Kto' is an alternative- or nickname for Edo that could be translated as 'Bay city'.

Katsukawa Shunko was a pupil of Katsukawa Shun'ei and designed also warrior prints (musha-e) and triptychs with Edo scenes. MFA Boston states that the series was published by Maruya Jinpachi in the 1790s but I think it was somewhat later, around 1805-1810. Other prints from Uki-e Kto depict Kinryusan (Asakusa), Enoshima and Sunrise at Takanawa.
