England will tour Japan in July for two tests, the first time they will play the Rugby World Cup hosts on their home soil.
Eddie Jones' side, runners-up to South Africa this month at the World Cup, will face Japan on July 4 in Oita and a week later in Kobe.
However, England are likely to leave several of first-choice players behind to ensure they stay within playing time guidelines.

"Japan were fantastic Rugby World Cup hosts, and we feel humbled to have been a part of it," Jones said in a statement.
"The England squad had a fantastic experience of the country, and we are excited to return in July next year.
"The Japan national team have shown again how good a side they are with their performances during the World Cup, and I know they will provide a great test for us in July."
England have played Japan twice before, beating them both times, with the last test being a 35-15 win over the Brave Blossoms in November last year at Twickenham.
