Hello, I am updating metadata of this Ukiyo-e digital collection at the University of Pittsburgh Library System. I understand this print is "Akashi no Tsuki (Moon at Akashi)" by Toyohara Kunichika (his signature on right bottom.) I can read another signature on left bottom as "Keshiki (background) Shodai (first) Hiroshige." I assume Kunichika borrowed Hiroshige's background from "Fūryū Genji Akashi (Akashi, from the series Fashionable Genji), 1853." You can see the original print at Harvard Art Museums (https://hvrd.art/o/206356.) Can you identify year of production for the Kunichika's print?
