JAL and its “Garden Jets”

On a recent Japan Airlines exhibition at the Museum located at San Francisco International Airport, I noticed a replica and photos of what used to be called the Japan Airlines Garden Jets, which were Boeing 747Bs decorated with garden motives. In a small mock-up model they had on display, I noticed that in the upper deck their used to be individual compartments with lounges that would convert into beds. Does anyone have any further information on this product?

Going back to the days when I used to travel on L’Espace 180 aboard the Air France Boeing 747-200s, I recall that the upper deck was not that wide. How could they possibly fit compartments on each side of that small cabin with convertible beds and still have space for a corridor in the middle?

Any insights or further information would be welcome and appreciate it.

Well it is wide enough.
BA have 2 x 2 beds on the upper deck but the model looks like one side is single seat/bed and the other side a double

There was plenty of room for the JL beds. The 4 beds on the far side perpendicular to the cabin wall aren't much longer than 3 Y class seats, and the 3 beds in the foreground positioned lengthwise are probably about as side as 2 Y class seats, leaving lots of room for the aisle.
