Recognized by sight: this is a very typical Agaricus, which can start with whitish to pinkish gills. not so easy to put a species name on them, tho, at least here in America! Don’t know how many you have to choose from in Japan…smell is very important…phenolic or almondy/fruity? also staining…bruise the edge of the cap or base of stipe, then smell and watch for color changes.

Close (?), but…

A. subrutilescens has been reported from Japan, but… based on the pileipellis this is more plausibly a relative of A. subrutilescens, many of which remain undescribed (look for greenish reaction on pileipellis with KOH).

The other alternative, which the veils support, would be something in section Arvenses (with an almond odor & yellow KOH rxn).

I don’t think so

Agaricus? It looks like it has white gills.
