Wing Kenki Fukuoka led the way with two tries, while Kotaro Matsushima and Keita Inagaki also scored as the hosts held off a fierce second-half assault from a team they had lost against in all seven of their previous meetings.
Hand it to the Scots, their own second-half flurry nearly put pains to Japan's dream. As it is, the Japanese are through to their first quarter-final in history, in their own country.
And to think, Typhoon Hagibis nearly deprived us of this game. What a pool decider.
