Happy Anniversary again, my sweet Max.

a judge rules a poor student must pay the wealthy merchant accusing him of theft with the sound of coins for the smell of cooking fish.
Was the judge, by any chance, named Ooka, of Yedo? Or does the teller use any name he likes?

well, I remember it as Ooka

Ask caradea

But can you not be there, Max? I was really hoping you might be with us, too.

I have a book with stories about a Japanese judge named Ooka, and that story was in it. I wondered if the name used was variable.

I've heard the same story, but with a rabbi instead of a judge. (I doubt that the rabbi was Japanese).
