Abe will be the first incumbent Japanese Prime Minister to visit Pearl Harbor after Tokyo launched a surprise attack on the U.S. naval base in December 1941.
His visit follows a landmark trip to Hiroshima in May by Obama, the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Japanese city devastated by a U.S. nuclear attack in 1945, Reuters reported.
"Ill visit Pearl Harbor with President Obama. This will be a visit to console the souls of the victims," Abe told reporters.
"I would like to show to the world the resolve that horrors of war should never be repeated."
The attack on the naval base by Japanese torpedo planes, bombers and fighter planes drew the United States into World War Two when it declared war on Japan, while the U.S. nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki forced Japan to surrender.
