You have the right two sheets of a triptych designed by Yōshū Chikanobu 楊洲周延 and published by Kiya Sōjirō in 1880.

The title is given as 廓の花里賑ひ, which I read as "Kuruwa no hanasato [no] nigiwai". I believe it's a sort of pictorial brothel directory, depicting high-ranking courtesans of various houses busily engaged in leisure activities.

The whole triptych can be seen here:
