Identify Japanese woodblock print of kabuki actor, possibly by Kunichika, possibly set on Tokaido Road

Need help identifying this Japanese woodblock print of a kabuki actor. I think the artist is Kunichika, and the print is set somewhere on the Tôkaidô Road. At the top of the page is a large box of Japanese text -- I'm hoping someone can read this, or otherwise identify any hints about the location, actor and character.

Source for a blank bamboo wall scroll/hanging?

Does anybody have any idea where I may be able to purchase a blank bamboo scroll/wall hanging? My friend does Ukiyo-e style art, and I have a small collection of these hangings with ukiyo-e style art on it. I suggested he make one and I'd buy it, but ... I have no clue where to get a blank hanging. [more inside]
