This special storytelling episode is dedicated to the late and great Stuart McLean. Stuart was one of Canada's greatest storytellers and one of the reasons I started podcasting. I aspire to be like Stuart. I will miss your stories and will honour you by sharing my stories with the world.

This Just Japan Podcast tale is all about eels in a bowl. It leaves shivers down my spine, but hopefully put smiles on your faces!

I will miss you Stuart, Dave and Morley....
