(Sean walks into the office and sees Anne and Saori)

Sean: Good morning, y'all.

Anne: Good morning. (Looking at photos with Saori)

Sean: What are you looking at?

Anne: Some photos we took yesterday in Katsuura, in the southern part of the Boso Peninsula.

Sean: That's kind of far. What took you guys all the way out there?

Saori: (Showing Sean a photo of about 1,800 "hina" dolls lined up on the steps of a shrine) Haven't you seen this on my Instagram?

Anne: He doesn't use Instagram.

Saori: Oh, I forgot.

Sean: (Looking at the photo) Whoa!

Anne: The entire city is covered in "Hinamatsuri" dolls. And they do it every year from late February until March 3. It's amazing.

Sean: What happens if it rains?

Saori: Apparently, with the dolls that are outdoors, they put them out every morning and away every night, and also when it rains. Think of doing that with all those dolls! There are 30,000 all around the city!

Anne: There were dolls on the steps of the shrine, inside local civic centers, in front of the gates of a Buddhist temple, and, wait for it ... at the intersection of a national road!
