This is a design from the series "Azuma Nishiki Chūya Kurabe" 東錦晝夜競, designed by Yōshū Chikanobu 楊洲周延. According to Andreas Marks, the series was originally published by Maruya Tetsujirō 丸屋鉄次郎 in 1886, and reissued by Tsujiokaya Kamekichi 辻岡屋亀吉 in the same year. I can't tell from your picture which edition yours is from.
