There is an impression of this design in the collection of the Rijksmuseum:

It belongs to a Hiroshige II series from the mid-1860s called "Edo meisho". The design depicts Kasumigaseki, and I believe the title is just "Kasumigaseki" in old-style kana (though the text is very difficult for me to make out).

I think the date/censor seal may be for 1864 (perhaps 11th month?), but I'm not totally sure.

Documentation on this series seems to be scarce; it is not in Marks, nor is it listed on J. Noel Chiappa's Hiroshige II site.
