Aaaaah, finally I can hit again:

The name Konnyaku IS Japanese, and I'll be darned if I know what it means.
The name was introduced into Europe when Von Siebold brought the first
tubers of this plant back from Japan into the Leiden Botanical Garden and he
baptised them Arisaema konjac. That's how it all started.....

and is this plant ONLY native to japan?
