I cannot read this (4 kanji plus hitsu) signature of a tate-banko of a scene of the Jiraiya kabuki play which is much like the scene described in a triptych work by Chikanobu. A Japanese friend proposed Kunichika but I am not sure at all it is right because to my knowledge the first two kanjis have not been reported in Kunichika's signature, and the third kanji does not look like kuni to me.
What do you think?
