The HTV-7 racks launched are known [JAXA]. HTV has the capability to launch four ISPR racks besides the four HRR (HTV Resuply Rack). The racks launched on HTV-7 are:
EX-9B & EX-10B (Basic Express Rack; 10x locker payloads capability with power, data and air cooling for all payloads.)
LSR (Live Science Glovebox) a second larger glovebox. (going to JPM F5.)
LSR (Live Science Rack; better known as ACLS; Advanced Closed Loop System, a ESA ISS contribution.)

Inside HTV-7 a small science return capsule; HTV Small Re-entry Capsule (HSRC) will be launched.
There is also a external payload, the Loop Heat Pipe Radiator (LHPR); that will be mounted on the i-SEEP (JAXA external payload). And several cubesats will be deployed using the Kibo airlock and the JAXA deployer.   

The return manifest is rather vague.

To be exact LSR (fka ACLS-Demo) is a Next Gen ECLSS experiment which is one 2 planned system demonstration racks (1 JAXA and 1 ESA) to develop the final compact rack version for LOP-G which will fly in 2 of the LOP-G. ROSCOSMOS also has its own ACLS rack which will launch in MLM-U and is a next generation and consolidated version of existing RS ECLSS systems (will allow further RS ECLSS recycling beyond current capabilities).

According to the picture from the mentioned JAXA document, the LHPR will be mounted on the MPEP, not on the i-SEEP.

H-IIB F7 carrying "KOUNOTORI7" has left for the launch pad. H-IIB F7, mounted on a mobile launcher, will travel approximately 500 meters from the Vehicle Assembly Building to the launch pad. This will take about 30 minutes. #H2BF7

T-4hrs 30mins to the launch of HTV-7.  Per the countdown, the H-IIB rocket's fueling is wrapping up, with LOX and LH2 loading transitioning to "Replenish" mode.

Japan Set To Launch Resupply Ship to Station Today

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is scheduled to launch a cargo spacecraft from the Tanegashima Space Center in southern Japan today at 4:59 p.m. EDT (5:59 a.m. Sept. 15 Japan standard time).

Live coverage of the launch will begin at 4:30 p.m. on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

The unpiloted H-II Transfer Vehicle-7 (HTV-7) is loaded with more than five tons of supplies, water, spare parts and experiments for the crew aboard the International Space Station. The spacecraft also is carrying a half dozen new lithium-ion batteries to continue upgrades to the station’s power system.

The launch vehicle will send the HTV-7 into orbit on a four-day rendezvous for an arrival at the orbiting laboratory on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

Launch of H-2B Launch Vehicle No. 7 was postponed again #h2bf7
The reason for the postponement was that an event requiring confirmation to the rocket occurred #h2b7f #nvslive
