Japanese knotweed is not only a notoriously invasive and destructive species, but it's also quite complicated to remove. One of the reasons that Japanese knotweed is so prevalent is that it's able to grow from a tiny fragment (3cm) of rhizome in the soil.
As you can imagine, thorough removal of Japanese knotweed and its root system is necessary if you want to prevent the spread of the invasive weed in the garden. DIY solutions and botch jobs will only create more knotweed problems for you later down the line!
