After removed from the EF by the JEM Remote Manipulator System (JEMRMS), the EP was handed off to the station's robotic arm (Space Station Remote Manipulator System: SSRMS). Then, the EP was stowed into KOUNOTORI's ULC at 11:35 p.m. on August 30.

The US payload Space Test Program - Houston 3 (STP-H3), which is no longer necessary is mounted on the EP. It will be disposed with the HTV4's fiery reentry.

KOUNOTORI4's unberthing operations will begin on September 4 and leave the ISS on September 5.
