It's a panoramic view (or pictorial guide) of the Tōkaidō road, designed by Hiroshige II.

There is an impression at the University of British Columbia:

They date the design to 1839, and credit it to Hiroshige I, but I see that the their impression has censor/date seals for the 12th month of 1863, which would suggest that it is rather the work of Hiroshige II. Other sources seem to agree with my attribution, such as:

This later date also lines up well with the similar work of Sadahide.

Finally, here's a blog post about this design:
