This is a print by Kawase Hasui, one of the most prolific - and well-regarded - shin hanga artists.
The cartouche is the seal of the publisher - Watanabe Shozaburo. This is the so called "D" seal, in use from 1931-41.
The writing on the margin is basically just the title of the print and the date.
In this case the title is "Kaiganji Beach, Sanuki". And the date is Showa Ku (Showa 9) or 1934. And the month of May (go gatsu).
