Hi there,   We are a couple that would like to experience a temple stay followed by a tour of Zenkoji Temple the following morning. Preferably inclusive of local dinner and breakfast. Are there any recommendations? I visited the Zenkoji website but information in English is limited. Tks Elena

Hi Elena,

The Zenkoji Fuchinobo Lodge actively hosts foreign guests and offers delicious, traditional buddhist cuisine. They can also arrange a tour of Zenkoji for you through the Bonsho-no-kai, a volunteer tour group in the area.

Check out the links for more information. I hope that answers your question!

Hi Elena,

I just spoke with a member of the Nagano City Convention Bureau and they said that the Yakuoin temple lodge also accepts foreign guests. You can reach them by phone at 026-232-8901 or by email at I am not sure of their english ability, but if you have trouble you can also use our multilingual call center for free English-Japanese interpreting.

Let me know if I can help with anything else!
