J. League second-division side Shonan Bellmare said Monday it has acquired former Japan defender Akira Narahashi from first-division club Kashima Antlers.

Narahashi, who has won 38 caps for Japan, including three in the 1998 World Cup in France, has seen limited playing time in recent years and appeared in just three league matches last season.
