The stamp was issued in the sheet:
"60th anniversary series of Local Goverment Act enforcement Hyogo Prefecture". 

The Shinkoro Tower, located near the third outer great gate, has been popular for a long time among the local people as a symbol of Izushi. In the Edo Period this was a watchtower, where a drum was beaten to announce the 8:00 a.m. assembly time for retainers. After receiving a large clock as a donation in 1881, it was remodeled to a clock tower. The present clock has been the third one since then.
