See the link at the bottom for the Wikipedia page for Hiroshige. See the link here for the Wikipedia page on the Tokaido Road:
If you want to travel the 53 Stations of Hiroshige's (Great) Tokaido road, go to this link:
Click on each station picture for a larger version.
From the label, it looks like they send you the Hiroshige print and a current picture/photo of the matching station every month. Actually, I'd be interested to see the current locations compared to the prints.
I can't tell for sure when your print was made, but I'd guess that this was a promotion in the mid 1900s. My guess is based on the phone number, which (to me) appears to predate the current international phone system.
