The artist is Utagawa Kuniaki ii (the link is for more explanation concerning Kuniaki I and II).
Signature on print Kuniaki ga
The publisher seal belongs to Daikokuya Kichinosuke. According to Marks this publisher was active from 1862-65, seal ref. 23-053/031. Unfortunately no Kuniaki work is listed.
This type of combined date-aratame censor seal was used from I/1859-XII/1871. The date on your print seems to read 1862, 5th month (Bunkyu 2 )
The carver/Hori is Katada Chojiro
I haven't found any similar print with which to compare.
