: Perhaps your friend means a "mamushi," which is a viper of some sort. Other than that, I dont know anything about them except I've seen a couple live specimens.
The Snake called the mamushi is a smallish Japanese pitviper with the scientific name of Gloydius blomhoffii (formerly Agkistrodon blomhoffii) This is widespread in Japan as well as Korea and eastern China.
Hope this helps.
