This is a design by Furuyama Moromasa 古山師政 (fl. c. 1740s). It depicts a view looking into the Yoshiwara licensed quarter through the quarter's main gate. This impression is clearly a modern reprint.

I haven't quickly located an image of an original impression of this design, but here's an original of a similar design from the same artist and publisher:
