re: Japan Postmark

It looks as if the traditional Japanese calendar based on the emperor's reign is no longer used? I first thought it would be Heisei 20 (= 2008 AD) but that would not fit with this more recent stamp.
So my guess would be 19 September 2020 between 16 and 24 hours (or is it 18, not really clear)

re: Japan Postmark

I went back to the Wikipedia page on Japanese time and date notation (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_and_time_notation_in_Japan) and found that the most used form is year-month-day, so that would mean this stamp was cancelled on 20 September 2019. So they don't use the European notation.
