How to Create Virtual Rooms Fast?


Hello Guys i am new to Memory Palace Technique. So far I am working on 3rd floor of my Japanese Language building and i am building my first room. So here is what i do:

I use my apartment as the room's itself but every loci in the house leads to another palace and actual loci's are there. For example:

Right as i enter the apartment i look right and there is a photo of my Dorm room(which is very small) and i use 10 locis in that room to put my Kanji Japanese characters. (I use Sword image in every 5 locis and a bird image every 10, thanks to advice in forum)

Then 2nd i see bowl next to the photo full of water, when i see it i go to underwater city in Guild Wars 2 video game. I have 4 houses with 3 locis each in that little town etc. etc. And i have an instructor kind of character in each room which i talk to and shows me around and loci's this way i remember the room better plus it makes the room to have theme. For example i have a lounge room with an exquisite lady talking to me like a scene in room while i am going around loci's. Plus when i try to remember the room i go, ah this is the Parch's room (An Old guy in a photocopy shop i visited yesterday but the guy is virtual).

So i have 13 rooms with 125 Japanese Kanji Characters so far in 2 days. I have some questions and i need help of you guys.

1. I almost always use virtual rooms in my head which have 6-10 locis and i put an virtual instructor in there who is relevant with the very first Kanji character for the room (for ex. Blue Pinoccio) but i feel like i waste soo much time to find and put locis in a room to create it and it becomes tiring some time after it takes 10 mins+. The first came to my mind that i should have 50 room furniture or accessories in a line like Major System : 6 is a tv, 8 is a bed. And i should have 15 themes and i should generate 10 room furniture to be locis in the room i will create with a 1 theme. Like : 1,22,15,47... with the theme 2 so i create the room with thes theme and furnitures that i already know. I need help from you guys about this. I use single rooms for every loci in the big palace to have 10 locis. Is my idea good and can you tell about yours to create fast rooms?

2. As i sayed it is virtual and even if i do not forget it, it is not that fast it takes sometimes 8-9 secs to remember the next loci in the sub-rooms and it 10 locis get filled reeaaallyy fast like in 5-10 mins room is full. Is virtual rooms bad and what do you think about only having rooms?

I want to memorize 1000 Kanji in a week with 3-4 pours of study every day and i want to create my rooms faster to do so.
Plus i need general advices for method of loci anyways. For example i will memory 1800 vocab word in alphabetical order in the 2nd floor and i do not quite have the idea how to do it exactly. I did read the post about it but i do not understand how to do rooms for Ca and remember that room for example.

Thanks a lot for reading anyways every reply is appreciated.

Have a beautiful day.

All of your palaces are virtual? Do you mean that they come from software, like computer games, or that you create the locations inside of the memory journeys entirely from imagination?

Are you drawing the memory journeys and marking the locations with numbers? If not, that might help.
