Yes, it is by Toyokuni I. There is an impression of this in the Rijksmuseum, RP-P-1958-484:
It is also discussed at some length in Forrer's "Surimono in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam", along with RP-P-1958-483 -- the two designs are reckoned as a diptych by Forrer. Forrer identifies this design as Segawa Kikunojō V as Tomoe Gozen, and the companion design as Ichikawa Danjūrō VII as Minamoto no Yoshinaka. Also per Forrer, the overall design may possibly be associated with an 1823.11 staging of "Kaeri Kiso kiku no hitomure" at the Nakamura, or it may be better understood as a depiction of an imaginary performance.
