It's a sugoroku board game, entitled "Haru asobi keisei dōchū sugoroku" 春遊傾城道中壽吾六. The designer is Utagawa Yoshiiku (signing as Ikkeisai Yoshiiku 一恵斎 芳幾) and the publisher is Tsujiokaya Bunsuke 辻岡屋文助. The date/censor seal is for 1861, 9th(?) month.

Here's a retail listing for another impression:

There is certainly a courtesan theme here, but I also see that the center-top image is on a Genji theme. I'm thinking the conceit is Prince Genji visiting the Yoshiwara for the big New Year parade.
