For what it's worth, I, too took this to be a Toyama print, but signed in imitation of Osaka artist Jukōdō Yoshikuni. The title text appears to suggest that the depicted figure is from the Ichikawa Danjūrō line of actors, but I doubt the then-current holder of that name would have been flattered by this likeness!
By the by, there's a nice article on Toyama prints on osakaprints.com:
It includes a discussion of the use of misleading signatures.
