The Future of This Blog このブログの将来

I am a viking. The title, and indeed the blog itself, worked so well in Japan; I chose those words to try to express the thrill of exploring, consuming, and being the Other in bountiful new territory. But now I am moving to England; does the title fit? Will the blog work?

I, for one, don’t see why not. In the early ninth century CE, the vikings invaded the British Isles. So it works on at least that level. But it works on a more important level, too; the UK, as far as I can tell, has a lot of delicious and bizarre foods (those wacky Brits!), many of them tied to specific regions and local cultures, just like Japan’s meibutsu. Hopefully I’ll be able to explore the British Isles’ idiosyncrasies, culinary and otherwise, in keeping with the spirit of this blog.

Oh, and of course, the vikings went on from Britain to invade much of the rest of Europe… so stay tuned!
