After their shock defeat to Japan at the World Cup, Ireland will get the chance to make amends next year.

The Brave Blossoms beat Joe Schmidt's side 19-12 at Shizuoka to blow Pool A wide open, and they will visit the Aviva Stadium on 21 November.

It will be a first clash between the countries in Dublin in 20 years, with Ireland also set to face Australia and world champions South Africa in the end of year tests.

The news comes after it was confirmed this week that Ireland will tour Australia next summer, in new coach Andy Farrell's first year in charge.

Meanwhile, Japan will also play Scotland in Edinburgh in November, after a two games series against England in July.

Speaking at the final press conference for the 2019 World Cup, World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont welcomed the news of Japan's northern hemisphere tour.

"There has been much talk about the future of the Brave Blossoms," he said.

"Our message is clear, we will do everything within our power to support them and all emerging teams to get regular access and meaningful fixtures in high-level competitions.

"And that includes, for the Brave Blossoms, matches against England and Ireland in the next 12 months."
