The JRFU today announced Japan will take on Argentina on November 5th 2016 at Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium, Tokyo.
The test against Los Pumas will be the first of four November fixtures scheduled for new head coach Jamie Joseph and his side. Japan will play Georgia, Fiji and Wales following the encounter with Argentina.
The Brave Blossoms have faced Argentina on five prior occasions, most recently in April 2005 in a try-fest in Buenos Aires with Argentina prevailing 68-36 winners. Japan have won just one of the five test matches with Los Pumas to date - that victory, however, came in the most recent clash in Tokyo back in September 1998 (44-29).
