Rhubarb is not very popular vege in JP.
Japanese people tend to east "Fuki" instead. You can buy Fuki between Oct and May at vege stores.

As the previous poster says, rhubarb is not common in Japan.

Fuki is totally different from rhubarb, you cannot make jam or pie from it, unfortunately.

There are some farms in Nagano that grow rhubarb and you can order it online, though it is rather pricy.

This site (associates of producer of rhubarb in Fujimochō, Nagano) offers rhubarb for JPY1,200/kg + tax + dispatch cost.
It says that they start delivery from May.
(Obviously you can place orders with them way before they start shipping.)
