Italy have added a test date with Japan to a summer test series which already includes encounters against Fiji and Samoa, the Italian Rugby Federation (FIR) announced Thursday.
Italy, who began their Six Nations campaign last week with a 23-15 defeat to Wales in Cardiff, will face the 'Brave Blossoms' in Tokyo on June 21.
The announcement was made by the president of the Japanese Rugby Federation (JRFU), Tatsuzo Yabe, in Tokyo on Thursday.
"We're happy to be welcoming Italy back to Japan after an eight-year absence," said Yabe in a statement released by the FIR.
