Help me find my Japanese grass

I want to revamp a medium-sized garden that I have at home and replace the slabs of tiles and thorny plants with a stretch of green, barbecue-friendly grass. Unfortunately, most of the area is shaded, "We grew grass there once but it died due to the lack of sunlight," my husband informed me the other day. He then told me about a special type of grass, "Japanese grass," he said, that only grows in shaded regions.

Naturally, I jumped on Google and started researching this peculiar grass so I can plant it in my garden. I found that there are two types: Japanese forest grass (first picture) and Japanese stilt grass (second picture). Just by seeing the pictures, I can tell that the last thing I want hanging around my garden is a plant that looks like Cousin It i.e. forest grass. So for now, I think Japanese stilt grass is the plant I am looking for (I think. I hope).

My husband has heard of Japanese grass being sold in Kuwait. If you know where I can find some, please let me know! And if you know someone who has planted Japanese grass in their home, I would greatly appreciate it if you let me know if their grass survives in Kuwait's extreme weather.

You can go ahead and post what you know in the comments below or if it is more convenient for you, send me an email at Arigato!
