"At this stage in my career, I just felt the time was right for a fresh challenge, and that will certainly be the case in Japan."

Day, who made his Wales debut against Ireland in Cardiff in 2015, featured for his country in the World Cup against Uruguay.

"We're sad to see him go, but understand the decision he has made," Bath head coach Mike Ford said.

"We wish him all the very best, and I'm sure he'll be a success in Japan."
