This seems to be an adaptation of a design from Hiroshige's 1858 vertical ōban "Fuji sanjūrokkei" 富士三十六景 ("Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji"). This design is "Shinano Shiojiri tōge" 信濃塩尻峠 ("Shiojiri Pass in Shinano Province"), but reimagined as a night scene.

And this design:

I'm not sure where this version comes from -- it's clearly from a recarved keyblock, but I don't have any other information.
