Subject:meiji print unknown

Could hiroshige be the artist for this print?
And could it be part of a diptych?

A few things:

1) If your title is correct, then it is not Hiroshige I. Hiroshige I died in 1858. The Meiji period started in 1868. It would have to be one of his successors; Hiroshige II, III, or IV. How did you date it to the Meiji period (though it probably is)?

2) The signature is too small to be seen. It pixelates if blown up.

3) You provided no size information. It isn't a chuban or oban format. Is it a book page? I suppose it could be a diptych of some sort/size.

Of course, you are right: it is edo if Hiroshige is the artist
size is 25cmx12.5cm
I include a better pic.
To me it is an early Hiroshige ando block...
What do you think?
Thanks a lot!

I think the signature reads Yoshishige hitsu, but I will defer to someone with Japanese language skills.
