The First Minister will read at the service, together with D. Hugh Thomas CBE DL Honorary Consul for Japan.
We must never forget the sacrifice allied forces made for our freedoms during World War 2.
Victory in Japan by the allied forces brought to an end six years of conflict which saw the tragic loss of so many lives and the destruction of so many communities across the world.
Their heroics in battle, often so very far from home, will always have a special place in our hearts and it’s important we remember and show our gratitude for their service.

The family of a Cardiff airman has been honoured 70 years after he was killed in action in the Second World War.
Flight Sergeant George Arthur Saunders, from North Church Street in Cardiff, was shot down in his Lancaster Bomber following a raid on Berlin on the 24th March 1944. All but one of his crew mates were also from Wales.
Now, his brother Ted and nephew Phil Saunders along with other family members will collect a number of military medals in honour of his wartime service.
"We are honoured to be able to remember and recognise the service and sacrifice made by Flight Sergeant George Saunders, and to ensure his family received his service medals in his memory" - Wing Commander Phil Sagar
The Royal Mint in Llantrisant is striking a set of silver coins from the bullion recovered from a merchant ship that sank during the Second World War.
British steam merchant ship SS Gairsoppa was torpedoed by a German U-boat in February 1941 off the coast of Ireland, whilst it was carrying a large shipment of silver bullion bars from India, destined for the Royal Mint.
The ship and its cargo were located in September 2011, and the silver bullion recovered by marine exploration company Odyssey Marine Exploration.
The bullion was three miles underwater - which they say made it the largest and deepest recovery of precious metal from a shipwreck in history.
Shane Bissett from the Royal Mint said: "The traditional Britannia coin design is the perfect image for the coins struck from SS Gairsoppa's long-lost cargo. We are so pleased to be able to bring these coins to the market at long last, albeit more than 70 years later than expected."
