according to this webpage, the new government surrounds the pot, and Mito is in front of the pot.
This print was made in 1868, which marked the end of the Tokugawa shogunate and the beginning of the Meiji era. A new government was formed, with three branches. Mito perhaps refers to the Mito-Tokugawa clan.
and happy xmas to everybody
