Nonono, it is NOT native to japan at all!! I didn't say
that. It is cultivated since ages in Japan and Von Sieboldt brought tubers
that's all. Am. konjac is probably native to China (but has also escaped from
cultivation there) and possibly in Vietnam. The problem is that the species has
been travelling with humans a lot. Hell, there is even a clone derived from a
plant found in Sabah (near Kota Kinabalu). Go figure!!
