And the second-floor plans from Yu's latest tweet, to which I've added some translations. It even has a suite room, with its own private bath & toilet facilities - very fancy.

(I don't know what's going on at the top with the extra stairs, door and sandals...)

Updated 7/25/2015: "sandal" text in the top area updated to "sample". Thanks to Kiyuu for the correction!

Comparing the earlier illustration of Ryo's room with these window and bed layouts, it looks like it could be the one at the top right.

So 2 floors as of now? I wonder how many floors will be in total.

Can't wait to explore this hotel.

Confirmation that none of the scale and detail that makes Shenmue Shenmue will be lost :D

Hey man, where it says 'twin room' etc...what's the significance, if any, of the "18" characters?

With Japanese floorplans it's common to refer to the floor area of a room by the number of tatami mats that would fit in it, even if the room doesn't actually contain mats. With these twin rooms, each has an area of 18 tatami mats. The standard area of one mat is 1.653 square meters, so this converts to around 29 square meters in size.

I've been able to make out a few more items from the first floor plan, after some further squinting. ;-)

In the inner courtyard area, what I thought could be a clothes pole turns out to be labelled as a partitioning wall. And near it, I believe the round shape is a well.

The room at the far right off the dining room is probably the Kitchen (a best guess from the shape of the characters, but it would make sense).

One of the mysteries on the second floor plan has been cleared up!

Kiyuu has identified the text in the call-out boxes at the top of the plan as reading "sample" (not "sandal" as I had guessed :) ), and points out that the symbols in the area at the top, such as stairs etc, are just samples for reference and are not part of the actual hotel floor plan.

I've updated the labels in the main image in my previous post accordingly. Thanks Kiyuu!
