On July 20, the encapsulated KOUNOTORI4 was transported from the Second Spacecraft and Fairing Assembly Building (SFA2) to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). KOUNOTORI4 was installed onto the H-IIB launch vehicle.

In the VAB, KOUNOTORI4 was mated with the H-IIB rocket #4. Afterwards, late access cargo loading into the Pressurized Logistics Carrier (PLC) was started.

KOUNOTORI4 is scheduled to launch on August 4.
