This is Kunisada II, signing "Ichijusai Kunimasa ga". The title reads "Sumidagawa", and the series title is "Edo meisho [no] uchi" ("Famous Views of Edo, Sumida River"). The "paired nanushi" censor seals date the print to 1847-1852.

The only copy of this print I have been able to find online is in this auction lot:

As you can see, their copy of the print sports a slightly different color scheme, lacking the vermillion obi and trim on yours.
