    It is far easier if you post the signature in a proper position. I am not very good at reading kanji sideways. Please read this sticvky thread:

    The signature reads Aishu Fujiwara Yoshikuni. I have not found any signatures with the use of the surname "fujiwara." It is likely a variant. The man was rated as a lower middle class swordsmith who's prime working period was in the Keicho Period running from 1596-1615. It would be considered an early shinto or new sword.
