Shohei Otani updates from December 27:

Otani toured the Ni-gun facilities in Kamagaya on Thursday.  He also found out that he will be moving into room 404, Yu Darvish's old room.  Source: Sanspo 12/27/2012, Daily Spots 12/27/2012

The Fighters have an eighteen-room player dorm in Sapporo that is more "like a hotel since there are no assigned rooms."  However, there was a room that Sho Nakata used often.  Otani could end up using the room.  Source: Sanspo 12/27/2012

Darvish's hold room at the player dorm in Sapporo is another possibility.  Source: Sports Hochi 12/27/2012

After getting a physical on Wednesday morning, Otani hopped on a cab with his parents and visited the team facilities in Sapporo.  His arrival was delayed about an hour because of heavy snow.  Yoshinori Tateyama was using the facilities and briefly spoke to Otani.  Source: Nikkan Sports 12/27/2012Daily Sports 12/27/2012
