In my opinion this looks like what we call "Rose Silk" the blooms are picotee and the flower is about the same size. So I guess it could be but the package from Japan is named "Yuuzuki" and I will add it as such.
This one grows the same as "Rose Silk" and so far all requriements are the same as another of the other Japanese Morning Glories I have.
