Please measure the dimensions of the printed area (not the paper) in centimeters and post those here.
I've looked at pictures of the Kannon temple at Abuto and don't believe that your print is an image of that temple. The Abuto temple has a red fence around the base, while your print shows stone footings at the base.
To my knowledge, he never used the oval "Hasui" seal on oban size prints. Therefore, I suspect that the dimensions will show your print to be a previously un-cataloged postcard size print.
The characters in the upper left corner are too calligraphic for me to translate, but I'm hoping that someone with better eyes for Japanese writing will be able to tell us what that writing says.
