It's from a mid-1840s triptych series entitled "Tōto meisho yūkan" 東都名所遊観. The designs are themed around sightseeing in different neighborhoods of Edo at different times of year. Each design title seems to include the name of a month, but I don't know if all months are represented, or only a seasonal selection.

I can't quite make out the title of your design... it's "[x]tsuki: Shiba Shinmei" x月 芝神明. The boy with the kite suggests to me that the Boy's Festival is depicted, but I'm not sure. And I haven't found another impression of it anywhere.

But here are some other designs from the series:
