This is a so-called crepe print or klepon. Originally they are woodblock prints printed on traditional Japanese papers (washi), but after printing they are processed by pressing so that the paper shrinks and wrinkles.
東京名所 葵坂 - Tokyo meisho Aoizaka - Famous Places in Tokyo, Aoizaka Hill (Hill of Hollyhocks)
Publisher's mark,
伊勢屋 - Iseya
I can't find painter's name.
Late Meji print.

The depicted flowers are "hollyhocks".

With regards,

First, I have to correct my answer. The publisher's mark rather reads;
伊勢辰 - Isetatsu
It is the name of a book and woodblock print publisher and wholesaler of various kind of paperware (fans, patterned papers, napkins etc.) founded by Hirose Tatsugoro 1st. gen. in 1864 as a franchise of the famous publisher Iseya. Since then the paper business has continued, now it is in the hand of the 5th generation.
I think this print was made during the time of the 2nd. generation in the late 1890s.
