if you scroll down the PDF,
there are some comparison notes and photos.
the flowers are different and the underside of japonica is less "hairy".
your plant looks a lot like F. japonica (japanese knotweed) to me.
With your closer observation, you should be able to tell for sure.

Here is a link that might be useful: identify F. japonica vs F. sachalinensis
