It's a reproduction of a design by Hiroshige I.

There is an original impression in the collection of the Indianapolis Museum of Art (acc. 49.22):

They date the design to c. 1855, but I don't know upon what basis.

The signature, for what it's worth, reads "Ichiryūsai hitsu" 一立斎筆 and the seal reads "Hiroshige" 廣重.

Reprint publishers sometimes put a seal on the back of their prints, so you may be able to get more information if you open up the frame to have a look back there.
