Yes, it's by Hiroshige II, here signing "nidaime Hiroshige ga" 二代目 広重 画.
The publisher seal belongs to Iseya Kanekichi 伊勢屋兼吉, and the censor/date seal is for 1859.1.
The only discussion I have found on this is on this Japanese-language page:
I don't read Japanese, but I gather there are three designs, each illustrating four months of the year. Your design covers the last four months.
The title seems to be "Meisho mitate jūnikagetsu" 名所看立十二箇月 -- note the non-standard spelling of "mitate" (usually 見立).
The National Diet Library has all three designs:
Also see this image of the three designs together:
