What is the name of this tree?

I was told this was some kind of exotic, possibly Japanese tree. Can anyone please help me identify the name?

Looks like Pseudobombax ellipticum alba to me.

Was not 100% sold on the Pachira, but it certainly resembles it. At the time of HORTUS THIRD there was considered to be about 27 genera in the family.
