Your print is by Hiroshige I titled: "Enjoying the Cool of Evening on the Riverbed at Shijô (Shijô-gawara yûsuzumi), from the series Famous Views of Kyoto (Kyôto meisho no uchi)".

Here is an original at the Boston MFA:

Your picture is taken at such an angle it is hard to be certain, but I think your print is a later repro.

Cheers,
Stan
