InsideJapan can arrange for you to meet a monk at Nagano's Zenko-ji Temple.
Founded in the 7th century this temples stores the first Buddhist statue ever brought to Japan, and the temple played a significant role in the development of Nagano city which sprung up around Zenko-ji.
Zenko-ji is unusual in that it doesn't belong to any one particular sect of Buddhism (it was built before the religion separated into different schools); therefore it offers the chance for all visitors to achieve enlightenment.
