Overnight leader Ryuichi Oda carded a 70 to finish second while defending champion Daisuke Maruyama (69) finished tied for third with South Korea's Kim Kyung-tae (67) and compatriot Sushi Ishigaki (68).
Japan's Ryo Ishikawa, who started the final round one stroke off the lead, carded a 73 to close out five strokes back.
