As far I can see there are no clues to the identity of the artist or the publisher.Probably it's a sheet from a triptych, and I believe it was produced in the second half of the 19th century.
It appears to be a scene from a street in Tokyo or perhaps the precinct of a shrine, where people are gathering for some festival. The text on the two large nobori banners seems to be "正一位稲荷大明神", referring to the Dai My˘jin (大明神) shrine. Very similar banners can still be purchased today (see above).
