Fiji claimed their first win of the World Cup since six second-half tries saw them ease Georgia in Higashiosaka.
Soso Matiashvilis penalty reduced the deficit to four points although the Pacific Islanders took the lead throughout Waisea Nayacalevu.
However tries from Josua Tuisova, Frank Lomani, Semi Kunatani, Api Ratuniyarawa and 2 from Semi Radradra gave a more bonus-point triumph to Fiji.

The guards, who scored five of their seven attempts, ruthlessly took Georgia apart although fiji were humbled by Uruguay in their final outing.
They could have scored more but the ball dropped as Georgia dropped into a Tier 2 nation to their very first tournament defeat.
Their win in a World Cup means Fiji have almost secured a third-place finish in the pool – and with that qualification for its 2023 World Cup.
Even the Islanders face Wales in their final pool match on Wednesday, 9 October (10:45 BST), while Georgia conclude their campaign against Australia on Friday, 11 October (11:15).
