Thank you @heirloomgal - very informative. According to the article, Fukuryu Chunaga was expected to be replaced by Fuku-uzura, though I don't see much mention of that bean online either. Interestingly, one of the distinguishing features of that plant was determinant dwarf (bush?) vs. indeterminate semi-climber (semi-runner?) growth habit for Fukuryu Chunaga. I have seen Fukuryu Chunaga referred to as bush, but it definitely had some runners.Here is the single hit I've been able to find online that has some information about this bean -
"Fuku-uzura" has determinate dwarf plant type, so it is distinguished from check variety "Fukuryu-chunaga" with indeterminate semi-climber.
