|Chinease or Japanese literati painting?|

So, I did a bit of homework. This is most definately a Japanese hand scroll. The story like format and the large size fits the profile, although many scrolls of this type are as much as 40 feet long.
I went through the entire MET online collection of Japanese scrolls. The gold rubbed paper and subject matter seems to point to the Edo period. Also, several Ukiyo-e artists of the Edo period share a similar rigid stroke to the characters of their names.
The first character of the name is either CHO or NAGA but that is all I'm able to decipher.
Just need a bit more help with the Japanese translation.
