Quite by accident, I've just stumbled across another print bearing this same signature, this one held by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam:

https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en/collection/RP-P-1961-151

They don't seem to know how to attribute it, either, assigning it to "Jakuun".

But there's an artist seal on this one, and the seal looks like it could be "Kan'un" 観雲.

The Japanese Gallery of Kensington follows this latter reading, in their listing for yet another work by the same artist:

I think I'm basically persuaded that "Kan'un" 観雲 is correct, but I have no information on an artist using the name.
