This is the left sheet of a triptych design by Hiroshige I, entitled "Mutsu: Matsushima fūkei" 陸奥 松島風景 ("View of Matsushima in Mutsu Province"). It belongs to a series entitled "Honchō sankei no uchi" 本朝三景之内 ("Three famous views of places in our country" or something similar). This design bears a date/censor seal for 1856, ninth month.

The series seems to poorly documented, and I can't find many images from it, but a small image of the full design can be found on this page:

MFA Boston has a single sheet of a different design from the series, this one showing views of Ōmi:

Relatedly, Hiroshige did another Mutsu/Matsushima design in his "Famous Places in the Sixty-odd Provinces" series:
