Scotland will host Japan in the 2020 Autumn Tests next November at BT Murrayfield.

The Brave Blossoms ended Scotland’s hopes of a place in the last eight in a riveting match in Yokohama In October with a scoreline of 28-21.

The match stands as a continuation of the long-standing relationship between the two nations.

This will be the ninth meeting between the two sides and the fourth time Scotland have hosted the Rugby World Cup quarter-finalists.

Scottish Rugby chief executive Mark Dodson said: "We're delighted to announce Japan as one of three exciting opponents for next year's Autumn Tests as part of an enduring relationship formalised in 2014.

"The strong relationship between the two nations is built on hundreds of years of historic trade and commerce and it's fantastic that this can continue through our sport, on and off the field, in both the men's and women's games.

"Japan have been outstanding hosts of Rugby World Cup 2019 and it will be an honour to host them next November and continue to build on the strong ties between our two nations."

Scotland's remaining 2020 Autumn Test opponents will be announced later this year.
