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. (Two more translatable things inside) [more inside]

How to transfer a design to a woodblock?

Printmaking question. I'm hoping to print some wedding invitations using a woodblock print. I have text and a design ready, but I don't know the best way to transfer them to the block. There are some small details in the design, so the transfer method needs to be pretty precise. So what do I do and what materials do I need? Some kind of transfer paper? Bonus: do you know where in NYC could I find exactly what I need?
