We wrote to Fuchinobo in Nagano to request for one night stay, we were pleasantly surprised by quick and positive reply.
Took the Shinkansen to Nagano and short taxi ride to Zenkouji entrance, the cute temple ryokan was right there, less than 1 minute walk from taxi drop off.
Room was huge, we had two room with separate sleeping and eating areas. Bed futon was thin compare to others, dinner was served in the room with nice varieties of vegetarian dishes.

Included with staying at the Fuchinobo is a chance to observe the morning meditation ceremony put on by the monks who run the temple. I definitely recommend going, but dress warm because it gets pretty cold up at the temple.
The only reason I gave the Fuchinobo a 4 instead of a 5 was because they lock the doors sometime around 9pm. Me and my girlfriend tried to go out and walk the temple grounds and see the city but couldn't because we were locked in and couldn't leave, which was a bit...
