Wales will face World Cup giant-killers Japan at the Principality Stadium on 19 November.

Japan, who stunned two-time champions South Africa at the 2015 World Cup, will visit Cardiff during the Autumn Test series.

The Cherry Blossoms recorded a historic first win over Wales in Tokyo in June 2013.
