The title of the series is "Gaikokujin no zu" 外国人之図. The Met has a print from the series, and the PMA has a couple more:

I particularly like this last one, which features a couple of tiny people with the label "kobitojima" 小人嶌 -- people from an island where all the inhabitants are tiny, like Lilliput in Gulliver's Travels.
