I think there are many people who visit temples, but I also recommend staying at the temple. When you say a temple, you come back to visit or exorcism. Depending on the temple, however, there is a place where you can "stay" like an inn or a hotel. It is said, "Shukubo (Shiukubo)", and let's look at what kind of thing together ♪
What is Shukubo?
It is said that the temple which is accepted as "accommodation" even by a general tourist.
Shukubo (Shiukubo) is an accommodation made mainly for monks and worshippers at Buddhist temples.The facility for monks is also called Vihara.Originally it was only for monks and worshippers, but now there are more facilities to actively accept general tourists-Wikipedia
For the average person, it is refreshing to be able to taste "non-daily" only in space that is only limited time.
How do you like to spend your time?
Do you always do things like practice?How's the food going?It's nice to stay there, but you may be worried about what you can actually do. I want to introduce a rough flow though there is a difference by the temple.

ences (zazen, Sutras, chanting, sermon, etc.) ※ There are
many cases where you may not participate
In fact, most of the cases are almost the same as staying at a typical Ryokan hotel. It is one of the accommodation services (not the main practice), although it is possible to have "various experiences" only in the temple. (Ref: What is Shukubo? -From the Japanese Sky)
How do I find them?
"Rakuten Travel" even in "Jalan", you can hit the search and "Shukubo" by specifying the region in the net. As usual accommodation, there are a variety of accommodation plans, and the price structure is similar. Rather than a temple, you may be able to say that it is one of the accommodations that shoulders the hotel or the inn.
There are 39 Shukubo in Zenkoji Temple in Nagano Prefecture. It is quite popular among the Shukubo because it is a splendid, beautiful facility and the training experience such as the vegetarian dish and sutras.
