It's funny, Chris -- I just catalogued the signature from this exact design (from the collection of the Honolulu Museum of Art) about a week ago!
The signature reads "Ōju Naosada …" 應需直貞 (I'm not sure what the last bit obscured by cords might be.) There is a very scant reference to this artist on Katō Yoshio's site, but there appears to be almost nothing known about the artist.
