    A quarter of a century ago when addressing where Japanese culture fitted in worldwide terms, Claude Lévi-Strauss pointed out that, based on the geographic dimension alone, the respective positions of France and Japan were symmetrical, because they were at either end of the Eurasian landmass. However, in terms of the cultural dimension, the two display an inverse symmetry (Lévi-Strauss 1988). The 2011 meeting in Tokyo on eels, and especially this book, gives the opportunity to a natural scientist to evaluate the comments of an anthropologist, on a subject shared by and of great interest to both French and Japanese, the eel.
