Fifth Division's barracks.

Like all the other barracks, the Fifth Division Barracks house the offices and living quarters of the Shinigami of the Fifth Division. While a captain, Sōsuke Aizen's room in the barrack was on the second floor. In contrast, Shinji's room, while he was a captain was on the first floor and, notably, contained a turn-table. Captain Yamakage's office is on the second floor towards the end of the hall. Lieutenant Makinami's office is located on the opposing end of Ishihara's. All seated officers have their rooms on the second floor while the other members are residing on the first floor. Many areas of the barracks have been renovated by Captain Yamakage, granted his "great fortunes".
