Obviously your print is a modern reproduction/reprint of the left panel of a diptych designed by Utamaro (see above).

The title is "Fry hana no ka asobi" (風流花之香遊 - "Elegant pleasures: the scent of flowers") and according to Shgo Asano's and Timothy Clark's exhibition catalogue "The passionate art of Kitagawa Utamaro" (1995), p 87, it was published c. 1783.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
