Does anyone recognize this attached signature stamp on the underside of a Buddha sculpture? It is in the style of the Kamakura Daibutsu.

Thank you.

This is mostly a stab in the dark, but the characters I can see appear to be:

I believe the right stack reads 'Japan, Tokyo, but I'm unable to transliterate the remainder accurately.

Maybe this will give the Japanese experts a hint.

Best regards,

Maybe a close up photo, only from the first 2 characters of the left stack would help.
