The biggest selection of hybrid (not heirloom) Kabocha squashes is stocked by Kitawaza seeds:

similarly Evergreen

Synergy seeds stock a heirloom Kabocha, open pollinated, not hybrid
http://www.redwoods.quik.com/webteck/george/vines.html

Also Kokopelli seeds stock open pollinated Kabocha, if you can get seeds from France.

Bella trix, Galina is on the right track - "Kabocha" squashes are usually C. maxima, buttercup type. Generally, the blossom end does not protrude. Besides the Asian kabochas, the gray Austalian squash "Queensland Blue" & many of the buttercups have similar quality. Sand Hill Preservation & Baker Creek are both good sources for kabocha & similar.
