The Old Red TV | Chinese Restaurants in Shenmue

Following our recent post translating an early Shenmue design document for Hong Kong diners, I decided to collect together shots of the familiar old red TV that can often be found sitting up in the corner of such restaurants in the game, part of the game's careful design.

Do you know of any other locations?

    1. There may be more lurking around! (I'm also intrigued that they made a small variation to the one in Manpukuken Ramen, giving it gray dials rather than being black like the others).

      Also noticed one on the counter at the You Arcade. Two more and we'll have our second set of four :D
