This is the left sheet of an 1853 triptych design by Utagawa Yoshikazu 歌川芳員, here signing "Ichijusai Yoshikazu ga" 一寿斎芳員画. The design is entitled "Minamoto [no] Yoritomo kō Fuji no mikari [no] zu" 源頼朝公富士之御狩図 ("Minamoto Yoritomo's Hunt at Mount Fuji"). It was published by Kiya Sōjirō 木屋宗次郎.

Here's what the full design looks like:
