Japanese Buddhism---Buddhist Monk--Buddhism was introduced to Japan during the sixth century (550 to 600 AD) via China and Korea.  The rulers of Japan at that time (Prince Shotoku and his father Emperor Yomei) were great supporters of the new religion in their land.  They did experience extreme resistance from the followers of the native religion (Shintoism) but later reconciled.
