The publisher is Narasawa Kenjirō 奈良沢健次郎, identified at the top left of the print by the firm name Ryōkodō 良故堂.

I'm pretty confident no artist name is present on the print.

A few other examples of toy prints by this publisher:

https://www.pref.kagoshima.jp/ab24/asobu.html (numbers 2 and 6)

https://asia.si.edu/object/S2021.1.9/

None of these three examples has any artist info either.

Marks lists series issued by this publisher by Chikanobu and Ginkō, but none of the series named there are of toy prints, so that may not be very relevant.
