In YE 43, when Motoyoshi Kaoru aka "Midnight" started the YTP Entertainment venture she opted out of the expected housing arrangement at Asagumo-jo. Instead she established a super-modern pad at the YTP Entertainment HQ to better suit her needs as a performer during her off time from the Star Army of Yamatai and for some independence from the Motoyoshi Clan.
"Midnight" was very specific about her needs; she wanted a residence that suited her style and captured the civilian side of her life. She also wanted a place where she could host private gatherings and have enough accommodations to house some of her sisters or some of her other company. Her residence occupies the 58th and 59th floor of the building, directly beneath the exclusive private nightclub run by her company.
The 59th and 58th floors of the YTP Entertainment HQ.
The 59th Floor.
The interior of the main pad has blue-tinted LED lighting that gives the entire space a festive vibe. An ideal atmosphere which makes the bright neon-colored lighting displays like the hot purple Midnight Infinity infinity mark that appears in several places in the pad. Other lighting displays include wall-mounted Tokyo Brewing Company logos with special Gunship Lager Promos and a “Sign the Waiver” copy of a Yui Planet Cracker promotion from the Brew Pub Menu.
The pad also includes several Solid Volumetrics displays including an animated striptease by Trouble Nekos leader Kaieda Meiri and a Nepleslian “Strong Arms and Thick Pipes” adult video sequence purchased with her sister, Motoyoshi Naoko in mind. Other unique decor includes a collection of different YTP Entertainment posters and a private collection of lewd photos starring herself, her sisters, and her friends.1)
The residence has several illuminated aquariums featuring colorful sea life native to Jiyuu III including live coral and various jellyfish. She is especially fond of species that have bioluminesence so that during parties they provide additional feature lighting.
An extra-wide spacious balcony with four corner spaces that serve as small dance floors that have secure staircases that lead up to the YTP Entertainment rooftop club. The balcony includes stylish synthetic leather weather-proof outdoor furniture, an outdoor hibachi, and bar setup. The railing and overhang above the balcony is decorated with a variety of small colored lights that can be programmed and linked into the pad's sound system.
The pad has a small kitchenette, but it is serviced from the YTP Entertainment rooftop club. "Midnight" has her own private chef, Eira Koga from Takeda House, that comes in and cooks for her when she is at home or is hosting guests remotely while she is deployed. There is an integrated Dumbwaiter for the delivery of meals or refreshments during private time.
The bulk of the open space is the main pad in the living area. Polished toft bamboo floors, black leather sofas, armchairs and footstools. The space also includes a large Foam Nekovalkyrja Nest that "Midnight" got from Second Chance Salvage Corporation in YE 432) and had recovered with a luxurious stain-resistant black velvet fabric that has been converted into a massive couch. Solid Volumetrics are projected from the actual furniture through the integration of Dataweave in their design. A large built-in bar stretches along the interior wall of the room, which is usually well-stocked.
The private recording and practice studio has two areas. A control room with all the equipment for recording and producing, as well as the pad's private KAIMON-GATE system which controls all the systems in the residence and handles the communications of recorded and produced data. The second area is a performance studio for singing, dancing, and choreography that is well lit with adaptive lighting and has polished toft bamboo floors that are stained black. There is a classic neon red sign which hangs in the doorway between the control room and the studio that will say “On-Air” when recording is in progress.
Some items kept in the studio:

The five Guest Suites share the common decor theme of the entire pad. Each suite includes a custom Nekovalkyrja-Style Nest with various pillows and blankets. Most of Motoyoshi Kaoru's inner circle are Nekovalkyrja. Each suite includes a corner-style bathtub, a volumetric fireplace, a private toilet, wardrobe, dresser, and a loveseat-style couch.
Items stored in the room for future use:
